Research Bulletin - March 2023 (Issue 84)

It is just over one year (11 March) since the launch of the Shared Commitment to improve public involvement in health and social care research, and an opportunity to shine a spotlight on activity. Over the last year NHS Research Scotland, alongside the Chief Scientist Office, has worked in partnership with patients, the research community in Scotland, and with other leading organisations across the UK, to help drive up standards and raise the profile, value, and importance of public involvement in health and social care research.

Elsewhere in March, a new UK Strategy for Clinical and Applied Diabetes Research was announced jointly by Diabetes UK, NIHR and the devolved administrations; the Chief Scientist Office (CSO) is looking to appoint a National Research Network Clinical Lead for Musculoskeletal Conditions (Rheumatology); new funding opportunities are available in Applied Health Research Programmes (CSO), Crohn's and Colitis Research Awards (Crohn's & Colitis UK) and Prostate Cancer Career Acceleration Fellowships (Prostate Cancer UK); and much more.

We hope you find this issue useful and as always, your ideas, feedback and contributions are welcome.
