Siemens Healthineers are once more supporting a pump-priming research bursary, the BIR/Siemens Research Award, to provide support to researchers in the fields of radiology, radiotherapy, oncology, radiography or medical physics.
The BIR/Siemens Research Award will provide £1000 for initial financial support to enable researchers to develop proposals with the aim of attracting further funding from external sources.
The award is in memory of Sir James Mackenzie Davidson, a pioneer in British radiology.
Andy Rogers, President of the BIR said. “We urge researchers to apply for this initial funding for development work. It’s a great way to build the case for further funding for projects in due course.”
Last year the award was won by Dr Susan Shelmerdine, from Great Ormond Street Hospital, London, for her work to test the feasibility of the technique and practicality of post-mortem ultrasound guided core biopsies in the setting of perinatal death investigation.
To apply, participants must provide a 750 word outline of the intended research project and send to [email protected] by 31 December 2017.
