Announcing a unique and unprecedented opportunity for ESTS members.  A Clinical trial Platform has been created in order to enhance clinical trial activity within Thoracic Surgery. The aim is to identify areas of interest for clinical trials in thoracic surgery and support our membership in the process of designing and facilitating the take-off by helping to select and connect to potential centers.

The faculty members of implementation consortium for the trial platform are listed below:
o    Servet Bolukbas, Essen/Germany
o    Alessandro Brunelli, Leeds/UK
o    Eric Lim, London/UK
o    Nuria Novoa, Madrid/Spain
o    Isabelle Opitz, Zurich/Switzerland
o    Gaetano Rocco, New York/USA
o    Brendon Stiles, New York/USA
o    Zalan Szanto, Pecs/Hungary

Clinical Trial Platform:  ESTS TEST (Thoracic European Surgical Trials) Platform 

We believe this platform will motivate our members to submit high-quality clinical research proposals. ESTS will continue to promote research and education and provide opportunities to our fellow members.
