Date:9/7/2007

LONDON, September 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Clinical research professionals from all over the world gathered at the Gibson Hall in London last night for the inaugural Good Clinical Practice Journal (GCPj) Awards. Opening this landmark event, Chairman of the Commission on Human Medicines Professor Sir Gordon Duff said the awards were a most important celebration of innovation and enterprise in the development of new medicines.
