Every year Health and Care Research Wales celebrates the life changing work of James Lind with numbers of events showcasing the excellent health and social care research across Wales culminating in International Clinical Trials day.
In 1747 on board the HMS Salisbury, James Lind took 12 men with scurvy, divided them into six pairs and experimented with different remedies. The two treated with citrus fruits made an impressive recovery and James Lind was credited with organising the first clinical trial 270 years ago. Clinical trials have developed a great deal since Lind's discovery and are of vital importance in medical research.
