Associate Professor Dan Lasserson, School training lead for Oxford, was presented with the award at the RCGP's Spring General Meeting last Friday evening for his research on stroke prevention and chronic kidney disease.

The RCGP John Fry Award is presented to a Member or Fellow of the College who has promoted the discipline of General Practice through research and publishing as a practising GP. Dan won the award for his contributions to research in the area of stroke prevention and chronic kidney disease.

The John Fry Award commemorates the work of the late Dr John Fry, perhaps the most prominent GP of his generation involved in research. Awarded to a Member or Fellow of the College who has promoted the discipline of general practice through research and publishing, it is intended to encourage people to undertake research as a practising GP early on in their career and within 20 years of qualification. 

In addition to this prestigious award, Dan has been nominated in the 2015 Oxford University Student Union Teaching Awards for Outstanding Supervisor. Read more about the nominations here.
