Following the NIHR open competition 56 Senior Investigators have been appointed for 2023. We are pleased to congratulate our SPCR colleagues; Steph Taylor, Richard McManus, Sonia Saxena, Tim Coleman, Tony Avery and Krysia Dziedzic in their appointments.
NIHR Senior Investigators are among the most prominent and prestigious researchers funded by the NIHR and the most outstanding leaders of patient and people-based research within the NIHR research community. NIHR Senior Investigators are critical to augmenting the ongoing success of NIHR, and developing the health research capability fit for the challenges we must meet.
Collectively, Senior Investigators constitute the NIHR College of Senior Investigators, and are members of the NIHR Academy. They help guide research capacity development and enhance the career paths of NIHR researchers. This includes participating as mentors in the NIHR mentoring programme.
The 17th annual round of the NIHR Senior Investigators Competition will be announced in summer 2023.
