Conversations about clinical research

The Research Lounge was created by patients who contributed to the UKCRF Network Conference held in Nottingham in 2019.

The idea was to provide a relaxed, informal opportunity for researchers, patients and members of the public to discuss ideas and issues in clinical research.

Since June 2019, we've been developing the Research Lounge to include a range of opportunities for face-to-face and now online conversations.

The Virtual Lounge

To support the rapid development of clinical research trials for COVID-19 we moved online, setting up the COVID-19 Taskforce and organising a regular programme of Research Lounge conversations initially using video conferencing.

Now we're continuing to talk online, using a dedicated Research Lounge virtual venue.
