Dear BCIS Member,
I am pleased to invite you to submit abstracts to compete for the 2 BCIS Research Awards 2020.
YOUNG INVESTIGATOR AWARD
This award is open to any person who is not yet at Consultant grade. 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.
BCIS RESEARCHER OF THE YEAR AWARD
This award is open to any BCIS member. Applicants can therefore include senior investigators presenting any type of research that relates to interventional cardiology.
Applications in each category will be graded and the best 4 will be invited to present their abstract to a panel of judges at the BCIS Research Day at the Royal College of Physicians in London on 9 December 2019. The winner in each category will then be invited to present their abstract at a main session at ACI 2020, and will receive their certificate and prize from the President at this session.
Instructions for applications:
In both categories submissions should fit the following criteria:
-statement of type of award applied for at the top, in bold (YIA or BCIS Research)
-name of applicant first and in bold, followed by list of co-authors where appropriate
-all original research, basic or clinical
-maximum text of 500 words
-plus up to 1 table and 1 figure
-headings: Background; Method; Results; Conclusion
-not have been published more than 6 months before the closing date (in other words the work can be at any stage of the process from unsubmitted to accepted for publication or very recently published)
-declaration of funding
All submissions should be sent to email@example.com by the closing date: midnight on 30/9/19.
I am happy to answer all queries about either award via firstname.lastname@example.org.
