Clinical Trials are both science and an important idea. On 20 Oct the Department of Oncology took its place in the main chamber of the Oxford Town Hall as part of the IF Oxford Science and Ideas Festival 2019.

Our stall set out a short and colourful introduction to some key ideas in how to design a clinical trial in Oncology.

By comparing the results of treating a number of plastic figures we were able to understand the importance of testing any new idea against the gold standard of care. We were also able to understand the importance of personalised medicine and the consequences of not taking the variable nature of cancer into account.

We met lots of very enthusiastic people.
