I’m delighted to host the inaugural BMJ Research Forum and proud that we can draw on The BMJ’s 180 year history of delivering trusted medical research findings to the global clinical and scientific communities. The two day conference will convene representatives from across the health research ecosystem, including England's Chief Medical Officer, to further our understanding of the role of research in clinical decision making and health policy, and to explore the value of emerging methodologies and science.

It is a time of transformation in medical research - the pandemic showed us that the only thing standing in the way of preprints, open access, platform studies, and digital trials was ourselves. But in the return to business as usual which changes do we keep and which were only ever a stopgap? And are our defences ready for further waves? Come join us at the Research Forum to build the future we need.
It was a pleasure to join the organising committee to help shape the BMJ Research Forum’s event focussed upon such an important topic, driving real world impact from health research. Bringing people together to discuss how we, together, make faster progress is critical.
