BCIS Research Abstract Day 2018 – Results

14th December 2018

Dear BCIS Member,

Yesterday we held our second annual BCIS Research Day at the Royal College of Physicians of London.

In the morning, 4 finalists presented papers for the Young Investigator Award and in the afternoon, 4 senior researchers presented their shortlisted abstracts for the new Research of the Year Award.

The standard of the entries was extremely high and the judging panels, chaired by the President, Adrian Banning, eventually chose the following winners:

YIA 2018
Dr Haseeb Rahman
Cardiovascular Division, British Heart Foundation Centre of Excellence, St Thomas’ Hospital Campus, King’s College London
Mechanisms of myocardial ischemia during exercise in coronary microvascular dysfunction

Research of the Year 2018
Professor Colin Berry
British Heart Foundation Glasgow Cardiovascular Research Centre, University of Glasgow
A randomised, double blind, placebo-controlled, parallel group trial of low-dose adjunctive alteplase during primary percutaneous coronary intervention (T-TIME)

Many congratulations to Haseeb & Colin, who will be presenting their winning submissions and receiving their awards at a new session at ACI in January.

These 2 awards will continue to be supported by BCIS on an annual basis from now on: the 2019 calls for submission will be made in Autumn 2019 with the national Research Day in December 2019.

Best wishes

Prof Nick Curzen
Chair, BCIS R&D Committee

Dear BCIS Member

I am delighted to announce to all BCIS members that Professor Nick Curzen has been elected as Research & Development Group Lead, and will take over from Rod Stables after the Advanced Cardiovascular Intervention conference in January 2017. Professor Curzen was elected unopposed. He has already brought a number of fresh ideas to the table, and I am sure you will join me in wishing him success in this crucial post for the Society.
