Successful MRC training course held for budding Chief Investigators
24 January 2018
The MRC successfully ran its inaugural ‘How to Be a Good Chief Investigator’ workshop in Liverpool this month.
Moving from the role of Principal Investigator to Chief Investigator is the start of a learning journey, and being linked with a trial centre along the way can help enormously. The MRC Methodology Hubs have developed their course specifically for clinicians who are aiming to make the transition.

UCL-based investigator Dr Claire Roddie attended the session, which took place on 17 January

She remarked: ‘It was fantastic; the speakers were excellent and the round table sessions were really useful. I learned a lot and would highly recommend this course to all junior PIs and new consultants’.

Helen Meadows, Training Lead at the CTC, added: ‘If you are thinking of putting in a grant application for a clinical trial, or have recently been awarded one, then this course is for you’.  

The MRC are hoping to run similar workshops later in the year. Keep an eye on their website for details.
