The UCD HIV Molecular Research Group have announced the inaugural HMRG European HIV Seminar will take place on Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th June 2017 at the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital. Hosted by Dr Paddy Mallon and Dr Aoife Cotter, this two day meeting has the theme ‘Working Towards Healthier Aging in HIV’.
As the life expectancy of people living with HIV (PLWH) approaches that of their HIV-uninfected peers, HIV-health care providers are managing conditions previously outside the normal scope of infectious disease clinicians, such as cardiovascular, metabolic, renal and bone diseases, all of which contribute to a more frail phenotype within this population.
This meeting brings together a distinguished panel of international speakers aligned with local experts who have been at the forefront of important advances in research into ageing in HIV. The meeting will be spread over two days of plenary sessions covering both important clinical and pathogenesis topics relevant to ageing in HIV, which will foster excellent discussion between participants and offer networking opportunities.
This meeting aims to provide those involved in HIV care an opportunity to update and broaden their knowledge in relation to management of ageing in people living with HIV. The meeting will be held in the historic Mater Misericordiae University Hospital campus close to the many enjoyable sites of Dublin, a delightful city to visit in early Summer.
There is no charge to attend this event and CPD points will be available for those in attendance.

#IrishMed Wednesday, 17th May 2017 at 10pm GMT
International Clinical Trials Day is held on the 20th May each year since 2005 to commemorate the famous clinical trial by Scottish naval surgeon, Dr James Lind in 1747. Faced with the dilemma of which of a number of proposed treatments for scurvy to use, Lind compared six treatments in what is recognised as the first prospective controlled clinical trial.

Clinical Trials have become the bedrock on which modern medicine has been built. Before a Medicine can be adopted into routine use, it must be shown to be safe and effective. Clinical trials are used to demonstrate that there is a clear, reproducible benefit of the proposed treatment over the existing regime.

Clinical Trials are essential to curative and preventative medicine as
well as to evidence-based public health. They are undertaken against a specific clinical protocol and managed to the highest regulatory and ethical standards. The results of every clinical trial – positive or negative - should be made publicly available.

Clinical trials rely on the generous participation by healthy volunteers and patients as well as the support of the general public. While we talk a lot in Medicine about clinical trials, we thought mark International Clinical Trials Day 2017 by reflecting on some of the practicalities of clinical trials and what it means to be a participant.

Co-host for this Twitter Chat will be Dr Peter Doran, Scientific Director of the UCD Clinical Research Centre, Ireland's leading academic-led clinical research facility based at the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital and St Vincent's University Hospital.
Why not join the conversation on Wednesday evening at 10pm on twitter? #IrishMed

#IrishMed is a global network of healthcare professionals, patients, their advocates and the general public where all views and opinions are welcomed, heard and respected. It takes place every Wednesday evening at 10pm GMT and includes regulars from all across the globe. #IrishMed was established and is curated by retired Irish GP and UCD Medicine alumnus Dr Liam Farrell (@drlfarrell).

Dr Peter Doran is Scientific Director at the UCD Clinical Research Centre, an academic-led, multi-site patient-focused facility that supports the conduct of industry-sponsored and investigator-led clinical trials and translational research.

Founded by the UCD School of Medicine in 2006, the UCD Clinical Research Centre has had a major impact on the conduct of clinical research in Ireland establishing modern research facilities at the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital and St Vincent’s University Hospital. However, the UCD Clinical Research Centre also supports clinical studies across a wide network of sites including Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin, the National Maternity Hospital, the Rotunda Hospital and St James’s Hospital Dublin.

The UCD Clinical Research Centre is an active participant in Molecular Medicine Ireland and is engaged in international research collaborations. In 2015/2016, the UCD Clinical Research Centre executed 189 clinical studies with over 6,500 patient contacts and over 72 academic collaborations. Its Scientific Services Laboratory has delivered over 31,00 biomarker assays, biobanked 1,300 samples of human tissue creating 40 disease-specific biobanks. Its educational programmes have seen over 110 graduate students from 27 countries world-wide receive expert training in the conduct of clinical and translational research.

Peter is supported in this evening’s twitter chat by Gareth Shaw (Business Development Manager at the UCD Clinical Research Centre) and Paul Harkin, Director of Strategic Development at the UCD School of Medicine.
