Time: 5:30pm
Venue: Perrin Lecture Theatre, Whitechapel Campus

Society wishes to base medical decisions on valid, reliable and generalisable research that delivers results in a timely fashion. Ingenuity may be required in developing study designs but conducting high quality studies with scarce resources is more difficult. Multicentre studies, first exemplified through the 1944 MRC's Patulin trial, can obtain results quickly and efficiently. This lecture will provide an overview of progress made in women's health trials, pointing the way forward for a clinical collaborative network in East London committed to recruiting women into research. Professor Khan moved to East London last year. He is qualified in Medicine, Clinical Epidemiology and Medical Education and his research programme involves diverse themes. These include patient oriented research involving testing and treatments in women's health, systematic reviews and metaanalyses, methodological research in diagnostic evaluation, effectiveness of educational interventions, and health technology assessment. He founded the first WHO Collaborating Centre for Reproductive Health in the UK. His work is, by nature, collaborative and he has led trials involving recruitment of over 25,000 participants, both nationally and internationally.
