Lady Estelle Wolfson Emerging Leaders Fellowship

We will be announcing application details for the 2022 Lady Estelle Wolfson Emerging Leaders Fellowship at this year’s Women in Surgery conference on Friday 10 September. The programme aims to encourage women to become familiar with, and subsequently apply for, various leadership roles within the surgical and healthcare profession including The Royal College of Surgeons of England.

We will be targeting ST7/ST8 trainees, newly appointed consultants and SAS doctors who are fellows or members of the College.  We hope to be able to identify those for whom our support would really make an impact to their career development and give them opportunities and exposure they may not otherwise be able to access.

The fellowship has recently been redeveloped based upon evaluations from previous delegates and now provides a programme of learning and support, along with access to a network of mentors from inside and outside the surgical profession including previous participants.

Imperial College London – Institute of Global Health Innovation: 2020, Our year our progress

Posted by

As we adjust to the new normal in which we are living, we also long for the return of life prepandemic. But despite the dramatic and unsolicited upheaval, for research and innovation, there are lessons we can take away to bring positive, lasting change in what we do.

The COVID-19 crisis has shown that we can, and do, work better together. The coronavirus has broken borders but so has science. As a united front, the world has achieved more than we could have ever dreamed was achievable. And we are immensely proud of the part that our Institute and its pioneering people have been playing in this global effort – not just in response to COVID-19, but to help achieve a world with better health and care for all through evidence-based innovation.

Alcohol Health Alliance UK: 2019-2020 Year In Review

Posted by

The Alcohol Health Alliance UK (AHA) is an alliance of more than 50 non-governmental organisations whose mission is to reduce the harm caused to health by alcohol. Our members include medical royal colleges, charities, treatment providers and alcohol health campaigners. We work together to:

  • Highlight the rising levels of alcohol-related health harm;
  • Propose evidence-based solutions to reduce this harm;
  • Influence decision makers to take positive action to address the harm caused by alcohol.

From 2018-2020, we focused our activities on two priorities:

  • Tackling cheap alcohol through minimum unit pricing (MUP) and alcohol duty increases;
  • Increasing knowledge of the Chief Medical Officers’ (CMOs’) drinking guidelines and alcohol’s link to cancer, particularly through better alcohol labelling.

COVID-19-related research at The Francis Crick Institute

The COVID-19 crisis requires a rapid, coordinated research effort to reduce the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, and minimise the loss of life. At the Crick, our excellence in discovery research, diverse science base, focus on human biology and links with clinical hospitals and global research collaborators, such as the World Health Organization, make us well placed to drive progress in the fight against COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2. 

To support the national and global effort, we have devised a research strategy that addresses the immediate practical challenges of controlling the virus, whilst seeking to deliver more definitive therapeutic solutions in the longer term. Our comprehensive COVID-19 research programme brings together a team of approximately 110 world-leading scientists across 12 laboratories, who will focus their expertise and energy on finding solutions to some of the most pressing challenges posed by COVID-19 and SARS-CoV-2.
