Announcement of the Winner of the BCIS Young Investigator Award Competition
18th December 2023
BCIS Young Investigator Award competition is a unique opportunity for our young colleagues to submit their original research. This year we received large number of applications for the above award than previous years. Initial independent selection process shortlisted the top 5 candidates who were invited to present their research in person at the BCIS Research Day held at the Royal College of Physicians London on 14/12/23. The selection panel on the day had the difficult task to choose one winner.
I am delighted to confirm that this year’s winner is Dr. Aish Sinha from King’s College London. Aish’s research is based on angina/ischaemia with non-obstructive coronary arteries (ANOCA/INOCA). His work further enhanced our understanding of this under diagnosed condition and improved treatment for patients with coronary microvascular dysfunction. Aish will present his research again at the ACI Conference in London next month.
Many congratulations to Aish for this fantastic achievement!
I also would like to take the opportunity to congratulate all the finalists for their outstanding work. I personally (echoed by the attendees on the BCIS Research day) found our young colleagues’ work very inspiring and thrilled to see we have so many talented young colleagues who really are our future leaders and investigators.
