James Lind Institute expands to Sweden
Following up on the great success in Great Britain and Denmark, James Lind Institute has decided to expand its activities into Sweden.
“Having spent 4 years developing and fine tuning the concept of a member based research community, it seemed the time to expand our offerings into new markets”, says James Lind Institutes founder, Henrik Vincentz.
First step for James Lind Institute in Sweden has been the launch of a Swedish website – www.forskningspanelen.se. Here it is explained how participation in a clinical trial is a good experience for most people how it assists actively in the development of new medicines.
Providing the member support in Sweden has been a big decision, as it involves an online presence, understanding local sentiments towards clinical research, and respect for the people who chooses to join our research community.
“We have long been asked to make this expansive step, but wanted to make sure that we were up to the task before taking on this new responsibility”, Henrik Vincentz continues.
In the near future, James Lind Institute will also expand its team by adding new personnel – please stay tuned for news on this.
