2017 Research Day supported by the National Institute for Health Research - held on 22 November 2017

Report on the event by Professor Vicky Goh, Chair, CR Academic Committee:

The Royal College of Radiologists Research Day, supported by the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR), was held at the College on the 22 November 2017 and proved yet again to be a popular event.

53 attendees with an interest in developing their research portfolio were inspired by a stellar group of speakers including Dr Owen Arthurs, Dr Tom Booth, Professor Margaret Hall-Craggs, Professor Andrea Rockall, Dr Andy Scarsbrook, Professor Stuart Taylor, and Professor Phil White, who shared their research expertise and experiences with frank honesty.

In the afternoon, winners of the RCR 2017 Outstanding Researcher of the Year award enthused the audience with how their research has made a difference and were presented with their prize and certificates.

A session with the Funders including the NIHR Trainees Coordinating Centre’s Dr James Fenton (Assistant Director), Cancer Research UK’s Dr Catherine Cowell (Research Funding Manager, Research Careers) and the Wellcome Trust’s Dr Clare McVicker (Senior Portfolio Developer, Research Careers) provided attendees with a real insight into the process of fellowship and grant applications, which will hopefully increase our application and success rates in the future.

As usual, Roentgen’s Den provided a fantastic opportunity for attendees to discuss and develop a research idea with a panel of experienced researchers (Dr Owen Arthurs, Professor Margaret Hall-Craggs and Professor Declan O’Regan) and lay representative of the RCR Clinical Radiology Academic Committee (Mr Manoj Mistry). We look forward to seeing those research ideas developed into a full project and submitted in the next funding rounds.”
