Grants & Awards
We support research by occasionally giving out grants to members and non-members of the society who submit a proposal of high quality research, relating to either clinical or laboratory based aspects of anaesthesia or intensive care medicine.
The Research Council of the National Institute for Academic Anaesthesia (NIAA) now handles administration of the ARS awards, apart from Vacation Scholarships. Our President's Prize for Undergraduate Research requires an abstract submission to the BJA Research Forum meeting held at the Royal College of Anaesthetists, London.
Please note we will not be awarding vacation scholarships or grants in 2018.
The NIAA Research Award is open to all current active investigators of anaesthesia, perioperative or pain research within the UK who have a body of research work – typically equivalent to two or more research papers on one subject or from a higher degree thesis (MD/PhD) – that covers a clear evidence-based research question. Shortlisted applicants will present their work at the NIAA Annual Scientific Meeting in May 2018 (see details below), which provides a great opportunity for trainees or newly qualified consultants to get peer review for their work, present to an audience, and take questions from a panel of senior researchers. The Award winner will be decided on the day of the ASM and there is a £500 first prize. The deadline for submissions to this year’s award has been extended to Monday 2nd April.
