BCIS Young Investigator Award 2024

26th September 2023

Dear BCIS Member,

I am pleased to invite you to submit one or more abstracts to showcase your research in competition for the BCIS Young Investigator Award 2024.

This award is open to BCIS members. Clinicians should be in training or in either a locum or fellowship post in advance of taking up a substantive consultant appointment. The applicant would normally be presenting original data from a project for which they have played a leading role, but will freely acknowledge the contribution of their supervisor and the rest of the research team.

Applications will be graded and the top five will be invited to present their abstract to a panel of judges at the BCIS Research Day on Thursday, 14 December, Royal College of Physicians, London.

The winner will then be invited to present their abstract at a main session at ACI 2024, and will receive their certificate and prize from the President at the conference dinner on Thursday, 1 February 2024.

All submissions should be submitted via the form below by the closing date of 5 pm on the 27 November.

I am happy to answer all queries about the award via

Good luck!

Professor Vijay Kunadian, Lead, BCIS R&D Committee
