The ACTA (Australian Clinical Trials Alliance) 2022 Clinical Trials National Tribute and Awards Ceremony was held on 20 May at the University of Sydney with online access.
The Minister for Health, the Hon Brad Hazzard acknowledged the intrinsic value of clinical trials to underpin the health system, the capability and skills in NSW and how they had been tested in the past two years.
Anne Kelso, CEO of the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) acknowledged all involved and all that ACTA does in promoting clinical trials. She also highlighted the role of clinical trials during the pandemic from understanding the virus right through to them providing answers and evidence that enabled government and health officials to make good decisions.
There were 4 award categories this year. Details of the awards and recipients here.
These awards were established in 2016 to highlight the outstanding Australian achievements that advance clinical practice and save or improve the lives of patients every year.
