A competition called “Start”, run by the HRB-TMRN, is encouraging primary school students to create or simulate randomised controlled trials. The winners will be announced at an event for shortlisted entrants in NUI Galway in May, and Dr Sandra Galvin hopes that the competition will build awareness among students and their teachers and parents about how clinical trials are designed and run.
