Lancet Young Investigator Award for Paul Brennan

Congratulations to Dr Paul Brennan who was the recipient of the Lancet Young Investigator Award 2014.

Recognition of clinician scientist research

The Young Investigator meeting is held annually by the Academy of Medical Sciences to allow Clinician Scientists to meet, share their research findings and to make new collaborations.

Attendees have the opportunity to present their research and a small number of the submitted abstracts are chosen to compete for the prestigious Lancet Young Investigator award, based on an interview and presentation.

The 2014 Lancet prize was won by Dr Paul Brennan from CCBS and Edinburgh Cancer Research Centre, University of Edinburgh, who presented work from his PhD on the stem-like cells thought to be responsible for glioma development.
