Doing research into research: Studies Within A Trial (SWAT)
Professor Clarke will deliver a talk on “Doing research into research: Studies Within A Trial (SWAT)”. The talk will be at 5.30pm in the Western Gateway Building, room 304, WGB 304. This is a timely talk, given the HRB-TMRN’s recent funding call in this area. Please see Professor Clarke’s bio below.
