The PharmaTimes Clinical Research Site of the Year Award recognises the impact a clinical research site can have on the UK's global research competitiveness by delivering commercial studies to time and target in a cost-effective manner.
The competition co-sponsored by the NIHR and the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) is run through a high-level industry steering committee with members drawn from the senior directors of top Pharma Companies and the NIHR.
Participation is rewarded every step of the way, with feedback and personal development. Finalists will celebrate their success at a special presentation ceremony, taking place at the Royal College of Physicians on 31 January 2013, which will be organised in your honour.
Dr Louise Wood, Head of Research Infrastructure and Growth, Department of Health, explains the significance of the award:
"Research active organisations deliver better health outcomes for patients. By sponsoring this award, NIHR wishes to give high profile recognition to the key role of effective delivery of industry-sponsored clinical trials plays in the health and wealth of the nation. We encourage you and your colleagues to get involved and help showcase what the NHS has to offer the life sciences industry".
The closing date for entries is 30 July 2012.
