March 2015 saw the first adAPT investigators’ meeting, held in Dunkeld, Perthshire. The meeting was attended by consultant diabetologists, research and diabetes nurses, statisticians, the trial steering committee, sponsor, funder and clinical trials unit. The aim was for people located throughout Scotland to get to know each other, for the investigators to explain the study and for the clinical trials unit to explain how the study would be run. It is anticipated that a second investigators’ meeting will be held once the study has started.
Here’s a shot of us all standing out there on a freezing cold Scottish Friday in March!
