New research fellows attend Oxford induction event

Date: 05 October 2018

The NIHR Clinical Research Network Thames Valley and South Midlands held a workshop for the members of its third fellows programme, where post-graduates training in medicine learn about healthcare research and recruit patients to NHS studies.

The fellows learned more about the scheme and had an opportunity to network at the event on Thursday 13 September at Block 8, Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, Oxford.

The fellows will work with experienced researchers to aid them in running and recruiting patients to studies.

Dr Maria Dudareva, a fellow in infectious diseases and microbiology at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said: "What really excites me about this research scheme is the opportunity to work directly with patients to be able to test something that can deliver real results within a decade or less."

Prof Andrew Protheroe, the LCRN's co-clinical director, who runs the scheme, said: "We set up this scheme so young investigators in our region could be fully trained in clinical research, right from setup through to delivery. They are signposted to lots of learning opportunities, so there are huge benefits for these individuals."
