Second year of success in Researcher-led Initiative grants

5 February 2014

In the second round of awards for the Researcher-led initiative grants, two PenTAG researchers have gained an award to increase research capacity in diagnostic accuracy research. These grants support the development and cascade of personal, professional and career management skills by and for early career researchers across the University of Exeter.

The aim of this project grant, awarded to Harriet Hunt and Zhivko Zhelev, is to increase the research capacity of Medical School researchers interested in diagnostic accuracy research, create a forum to discuss methodological issues and share knowledge and experience, and provide an opportunity for networking, with the ambition of developing ideas for future work in this area. Four seminars on key topics are proposed to meet these aims, and build more links between researchers at the University of Exeter Medical School, and those in other Colleges of the university.

This builds on PenTAG’s success last year in gaining these important awards for developing early career researchers and sharing research capacity in key areas. For more details, please contact the award winners directly.
