Best of luck to them all when the awards are announced on 17 November.

Now into their fourth year, the NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN): Greater Manchester awards provide a way for the local research community to benchmark their skills against their peers.

Debbie Vinsun, Chief Operating Officer at the NIHR CRN: Greater Manchester, said: “The awards provide a way for us to recognise our region’s hard-working and high-achieving researchers, research teams, research and development departments and other research support functions.

“We received a great deal of nominations and the standard was really high, making the judges’ jobs very difficult. I very much look forward to the awards ceremony next month to commemorate the hard work of everyone nominated and our winners.”

Senior Emergency Medicine Research Nurse at Salford Royal Kate Clayton won the award for Outstanding Contribution in the Greater Manchester Clinical Research Awards last year.
