Clinical Translation

Our vision is to support the development of medical devices and digital health technologies by facilitating excellent clinical trials and upskilling the workforce.

To achieve this we aim to enable efficient early-stage clinical trials for verification and validation of new medical devices and digital health technologies to support implementation through:

  • Providing greater connectivity between clinicians, researchers and industry via virtual and in-person networks

  • Increasing the skills and knowledge of those conducting clinical trials
