Short introduction and the proposed concept of a ‘clinical trials’ subcommittee because of

Round table on possible BMUC ‘clinical trials’ subcommittee
Open and transparent discussion on the form of what a future collaboration could take, ranging from a simple 1-hour ‘clinical trials’ session at each yearly BMUC, highlighting the different open protocols to a full GETUG-like set-up with regular meetings to discuss, draft and fund collaborative trials. It is important to note that the BMUC statutes allow it to act as sponsor of trials.
