University College Dublin is the sponsor of the POPART trial funded by the PedCRIN project and it has employed PedCRIN services for the expansion of the POPART trial into other European countries (Belgium, Czech Republic, Itlay, Portugal, Norway, Sweden).
UCD is one of Europe's leading research-intensive universities; an environment where undergraduate education, masters and PhD training, research, innovation and community engagement form a dynamic spectrum of activity.
As part of the series of interviews it was a pleasure to speak to UCD about their experience of working with PedCRIN as a sponsor. UCD expressed that PedCRIN has provided significant local support from experienced staff for the conduct of the POPART trial within the European region which has helped things be completed smoothly and in accordance with local requirements.
UCD mentioned that the work done for the study by ECRIN is really impressive and the ECRIN staff have done an amazing job supporting the POPART trial.
UCD would be most happy to collaborate with ECRIN-PedCRIN again should the opportunity arise.
