Dear BCIS Member,
The deadline for the new award, BCIS Research of the Year Award, has been extended to midnight 21st October 2018. This competition is open to all researchers, not just Young Investigators, and will run in parallel with the YIA. Our aim is to attract the submission of any original research from more senior investigators around the UK. The best 4 submissions will be shortlisted for presentation at the BCIS Research Day at the Royal College of Physicians in London on December 13 2018, at which a panel of judges will pick the overall winner. The winner in this category will then be invited to present their abstract at a main session at ACI 2019 and will receive their certificate and prize from the President at this session.
