Orthopaedic Trauma Society and NIHR Clinical Research Network Awards 2021 Presented
The Orthopaedic Trauma Society and NIHR Clinical Research Network Awards (2021) were presented at the 10th NIHR OTS Musculoskeletal Trauma Trials Annual Meeting on 15th June. The awards seek to recognise PIs and trainee PIs that go above and beyond other investigators to ensure research is embedded into clinical practice.
The Best Musculoskeletal Trauma Principle Investigator (PI) is Aaron Ng and the St George’s Hospital’s junior orthopaedic research fellows (JORF) team have been jointly awarded the Best Musculoskeletal Trauma Trainee PI.
The JORF team at the St George's University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust includes Charlotte Brookes, Sara Dardak, Maria Dadabhoy, Roshan Rupra and Rhody Raj. The JORF team has worked together to support each other covering a large number of studies, at times covering over 100 clinical patients while also managing to recruit into other trials such as ACTIVE, WHiTE9, OPEN, SOFFT, ARTISAN,PROFHER, CRAFFT and HUSH.
Aaron Ng is a consultant orthopaedic surgeon at the Pinderfields General Hospital; honorary senior lecturer at the University of Leeds; PI for the WHiTE 11 FRUITI, WHiTE 9, CRAFFT and SOLARIO studies. He has been awarded the Best Musculoskeletal Trauma PI as a result of his dedication to recruiting patients to studies. He was commended for being friendly and approachable to patients and families in his care and for promoting research to staff, encouraging registrars to get involved in research and to join the Associate PI Scheme.
Professor Matt Costa, NIHR CRN National Specialty Lead for Trauma and Emergency Care said:
"These awards are a fantastic way of recognising the excellent work being undertaken in musculoskeletal trauma research across the UK. Particularly, because the candidates are nominated by their colleagues, really highlighting the appreciation of efforts and value the winners have in raising the profile of musculoskeletal trauma research.”
Congratulations to all involved!
