North West London Clinical Research Awards 2020 - Nominations now open

North West London Clinical Research Awards 2020 - Nominations now open

The North West London Clinical Research Awards are back for a second year, showcasing the work carried about by researchers and research staff on commercial and non-commercial studies across our region.

This year it is more important than ever to recognise achievements in the face of adversity, so we’ve added two extra awards to recognise those working on COVID-19 research.

The awards are open to anyone working in research in North West London, but nominations must be related to work on studies on the NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN) Portfolio since the start of 2020.

Nominations will be judged by a panel of staff and patient representatives from across North West London. You can’t nominate yourself or your own team, nor can members of the judging panel take part.

Judging will be based on the quality of the content, not the number of nominations, so please make sure you give us as much information as possible on why you think they should receive an award.

Nominations close on Friday 16 October 2020.

Winners will be announced at an online awards ceremony featuring a special guest on Thursday 19 November 2020.
