GloPID-R’s scientific activity in the spotlight

Dr. Alice Norton,
Scientific Manager, GloPID-R

As the head of GloPID-R’s team of scientists and policy specialists, I am pleased to have the opportunity to shine the spotlight on GloPID-R’s scientific activity during what has been an especially productive year thus far.

Many of our readers are participants in one or more of GloPID-R’s five working groups. Our reinvigorated Clinical Trial Networks & Funders (CTN&F) group has gained momentum as well as many new members. These representatives of clinical trial networks and funders will meet in late September to finalize the development of a living roadmap of principles, standards and actions for funders, which will be presented at the GloPID-R General Assembly meeting in Berlin in October. We hope to make it available publicly in 2023.
