Clinical Trials Day 2021

COVID-19 made 2020 the most challenging year in decades – but clinical researchers rose to the challenge. Thanks to clinical trials, millions of doses of life-saving vaccines have been developed and administered around the world, giving hope for a better year ahead.

Hope. That’s what clinical researchers provide. Every day, they rise to a new challenge and give patients and families hope for a healthier, more promising tomorrow.

On this Clinical Trials Day, the Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP) thanks clinical researchers around the world for continuing to rise to the challenge and give us hope. Hope in the battle against infectious disease. Hope in the battle against cancer. Hope in the battle against anything that challenges our pursuit of a better tomorrow.

Why May 20?

Clinical Trials Day is celebrated around the world in May to recognize the day that James Lind started what is often considered the first randomized clinical trial aboard a ship on May 20, 1747. Clinical Trials Day 2021 is sponsored by Sanofi.
