Oxford consultant wins emergency medicine research award

Oxford consultant wins emergency medicine research award

An Oxford consultant has won a national award for his role in promoting research in emergency medicine.

Dr Alex Novak (pictured right), a Consultant in Emergency Medicine and Ambulatory Care at the John Radcliffe Hospital and Horton General Hospital, was named Principal Investigator of the Year at the research awards run jointly by the NIHR Clinical Research Network and the Royal College of Emergency Medicine (RCEM) on 10 January in London.

The awards recognise outstanding contributions of investigators in carrying out clinical research in the field of emergency medicine.

Dr Novak, a Research Fellow for the NIHR Clinical Research Network Thames Valley and South Midlands, said: "I'm thrilled and honoured to have been given this award, and very grateful to have been given the chance to talk about all the work being done by my team to develop emergency medicine research in Oxford, as well as by our regional partners in the Thames Valley.

"Huge thanks to both the RCEM Research Committee and the NIHR, and all the supportive people in and around the Trust - their support and guidance has been of critical importance in allowing us to push things forward in the department, and on a personal level has had a transformative effect on my career path."
