National Research Collaborative Meeting 2013
The NRCM on December 6th in London is set to be the biggest yet with up to 150 delegates from across the UK. It will be hosted by the London Surgical Research Group. The event, which will be free to attend, is also supported by the Royal College of Surgeons of England, where it is due to be held.

Not only will past successes be showcased, new projects ready for researchers to join will be unveiled. It will be a great opportunity to get involved in high quality research projects that will ultimately result in a high impact publications.

For the first time this event will also be webcast so that those who are unable to travel will still be able to attend as a virtual delegate.

Other sessions planned will provide inspiration and ideas. The research workshop, facilitated by methodologists and triallists, will see teams of delegates competing to design the perfect trial in just 2 hours. Professor Norman Williams, president of the Royal College of Surgeons of England will speak about his rise to international fame as a pioneer in colorectal surgery and innovation. And Prof Ian Roberts will divulge his experience in running the CRASH trials, the largest international trials in trauma.

This year will also feature a new session, a debate. Experts including Prof John Macfie, past president of the Association of Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland, Dame Ruth Carnall, previous chief Executive of NHS London, and Peter Holt, vascular consultant at St George’s Hospital, will battle it out for your vote. The motion will be revealed in September, but it promises to cause some sparks. Please see the flyer here for more details
