SPCR fellow Zarnie Khadjesari (2011-2014), has been awarded a King’s Improvement Science (KIS) senior fellowship to start in June 2016 for a period of three years.

The senior KIS fellowship, based at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience (IoPPN) at King’s College London, is designed to contribute to the shaping and development of the emerging Centre of Implementation Science as a prime research centre on implementation science and quality and safety of healthcare delivery in the UK and internationally.  

Zarnie will support a programme of research with a view to developing an implementation outcomes toolkit.  She will also continue her research in the field of alcohol use, using it as a test-bed for the implementation outcomes developed by the team. 

My School funded fellowship provided me with a platform from which to work independently on my own programme of research, expand my academic collaborations and develop new links with charity and industry, and gain experience applying for small grants from the SPCR. 

This activity, supported by my mentor Professor Elizabeth Murray, helped develop my career and put me in a strong position for the KIS fellowship."
