NIHR Royal Brompton Respiratory and Cardiovascular Biomedical Research Units sponsored the eighth annual Trust research poster exhibition, held in the NHLI education centre.
The event was well attended by researchers and other Trust staff coming to view posters from allied health professionals and healthcare scientists.
The exhibition featured a diverse programme that included current research, programme evaluation, and audit findings from the Trust and Imperial College London. Thirty candidates were selected to present their posters to a panel of expert judges with expertise across the disciplines.
This year there was also a plenary talk from Dr Fiona Cramp, director of postgraduate research studies, University of West England, who spoke on “Becoming an effective research leader: do you have what it takes?”
Dr Sharon Fleming, chair of the allied health professionals, healthcare scientists and nursing research committee said: “The exhibition gets larger each year and I think the standards are rising each year too, which is a testament to the ongoing commitment to research at the Trust. I’d like to thank everyone who was involved in making this year’s event such a success.”
Professor Tim Evans, director of research and medical director, presented the awards for the best posters. Emily Frost, paediatric physiologist and cell biologist, was awarded first prize for her poster entitled “Immunofluorescene aids the diagnosis of primary ciliary dyskinesia”
Professor Evans commented: “Presenting these awards is a very enjoyable duty. I have reviewed all the posters and would like to congratulate the contributors for the very high standard of work shown here today.”
