This is being organised by the Oxford Centre for Clinical Therapeutics (NDORMS, Oxford) and the Forum for Therapeutic Innovation at St Hilda's College, Oxford. It is sponsored by the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology.

The symposium will bring together leading clinician-scientists from both academia and industry who are actively running human challenge studies, developing new techniques to interrogate the immune response and capturing this information for therapeutic benefit. It will additionally focus on the ethical, statistical and regulatory considerations of challenge studies, seeking to stimulate debate and discussion around their conduct and future role in scientific research.

The event will take place in the Jacqueline du Pré Music Building, St Hilda’s College, Oxford, OX4 1DY. There is no parking available on site. The nearest parking facility is located on St Clements.
