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.

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:
Dr Haseeb Rahman

BCIS Young Investigator Research DAY: Call to submit abstracts
22nd September 2017
DEADLINE EXTENDED to 23rd October 2017
Call for abstracts for BCIS Young Investigator Competition to be held at RCP London 30/11/17
We are organising the YIA Competition differently this year.
The plan is to hold a Research Day at RCP London on 30/11/17 during which a panel made up of BCIS Research Group members will listen to shortlisted abstracts being presented, following which there will be up to 10 mins of questions.
The best 3 presentations will then be shortlisted for the formal YIA session at ACI in January, when they will compete for the overall title of Young Investigator of the Year, with prize presentations at the dinner at ACI.
All abstracts selected for presentation on 30/11 will be published in a Heart supplement.
We are therefore inviting submissions for the Research Day on 30/11/17.
