NIAA Research Award 2018

The NIAA is pleased to announce details of the NIAA Research Award for 2018.

The award aims to promote and encourage current (within 18 months of submission deadline) and active researchers within the field of anaesthesia, perioperative medicine or pain in the UK, and will be awarded to an individual who has demonstrated excellence in scientific research relevant to these areas. It also allows new investigators to achieve recognition through presentation at a national meeting with peer-review.

Applicants are encouraged to submit their completed 'body of work' that may have been presented at an equivalent scientific national or international meeting or published as an abstract or full paper in a peer reviewed journal.

Short listed applicants will be invited to present their work at the NIAA Annual Scientific Meeting being held on Monday 21st May 2018, at the RCoA in London. The winner will be selected on the day and there is an honorarium of £500. Applicants should ensure they are free to attend and present at the Annual Scientific Meeting in the event of being shortlisted.

A 'body of work' will include a project that covers a clear, evidence-based research question, appropriate methods, well-conduced study/studies and statistical analysis of results drawing to a valid conclusion. It would typically be the equivalent to two or more research papers on one subject area or from a higher degree thesis (MD/PhD).
