Research Bulletin - June 2016 (Issue 6)


Whilst the sun might be shining and October seems a long way off make sure you take some time to review the brand new NHS Research Scotland Annual Conference website full of the latest information on the 2016 conference. Registration will open later this month but you can now submit poster or oral abstracts or book your exhibition space. Make sure you take the opportunity to get involved in making our 2016 conference the biggest and best yet. Also in this issue we celebrate the University of Glasgow being awarded Regius Professorship of Precision Medicine by Her Majesty the Queen - a remarkable honour and recognition of the university’s international reputation and leading role in precision medicine. We also celebrate the ECLS study reaching 12,000 participant target - a great achievement by all involved; and look at new events coming up through the summer including SINAPSE and One Health. As always your ideas, feedback and contributions are welcomed.
