NIHR FAN Webinar: Writing a good HTA application: Evidence Synthesis and Trials

The University of Exeter's National Institute of Health and Care Research (NIHR) Funder Advisory Network (FAN) is delighted to host this panel discussion on "Writing a good HTA application: Evidence Synthesis and Trials"

Our panel combines colleagues with NIHR expertise and HTA-specific knowledge. All panel members will share their insight and experience of the scheme, followed by a chance for attendees to ask questions.

The panel comprises:

Professor Siobhan Creanor, Director of the UKCRC-registered Exeter Clinical Trials Unit (ExeCTU) and Professor of Medical Statistics & Clinical Trials at Exeter. Siobhan is an experienced senior statistician and clinical trial methodologist, working across a wide range of clinical and healthcare areas and different trial designs. She is an expert reviewer of funding applications and final reports for numerous funders and calls, including the NIHR HTA scheme and was previously chair of the NIHR RfPB South West Committee.

Professor Simon Gates, Professor of Biostatistics and Clinical Trials at the Cancer Research UK Clinical Trials Unit (CRCTU) at Birmingham. Simon is involved in design, supervision, analysis and reporting of clinical trials in a variety of clinical areas. He is a member of the NIHR HTA Board.

Professor Jo Thompson-Coon, Professor of Evidence Synthesis and Health Policy at Exeter. Since 2009 Jo has led the PenARC (previously PenCLAHRC) Evidence Synthesis Team in producing systematic reviews and evidence syntheses to inform locally relevant evidence based practice. She also leads two NIHR funded evidence synthesis units, the Exeter HSDR Evidence Synthesis Centre and the Exeter PRP Evidence Review Facility both of which produce evidence syntheses to inform national policy. Jo is a member of the NIHR HTA General Funding Committee.

There will be opportunity to submit questions via the Zoom chat function during the panel discussion, and we will get through as many of these as possible during the session.

The session will be recorded.
