MeDiNova Research supports Healthcare Science Week.

MeDinNova Research’s healthcare science team is supporting British Healthcare Science Week, run by the British Science Association from 9 to 18 March 2018.

As part of the wider National Science Week, healthcare science professionals across the UK are engaging their local communities for Healthcare Science Week and demonstrating the outstanding work of individuals working in healthcare science and their impact on patient care.

Kumar Muthalagappan, OBE and Chief Executive of MeDiNova Research said:

“Healthcare Science Week is a great opportunity for us to promote the amazing work of the healthcare science workforce. There are still a lot of myths about healthcare science as a career.

“At MeDiNova we are dedicated to conducting clinical research trials.  We have been investigating the effectiveness of new medicines and treatments for more than 20 years. MeDiNova has seven dedicated Research Centres in the UK and 40 sites world-wide. Each centre has its own experienced teams of research doctors, supported by dedicated nurses, healthcare professionals and administrators.

Kumar continued:

“Without clinical research and the invaluable support of clinical trial volunteers, as well as the teams of people involved in healthcare science, everyday treatments – from paracetamol to insulin – would not have been available.

“Healthcare science staff support and improve patient experience from directly helping patients on a ward, to working with other healthcare professionals on ground breaking research and cutting-edge science.  It is good to know that their hard work is being recognised during National Healthcare Science Week.”
