Adrienne Flanagan appointed as NIHR Senior Investigator
Professor Flanagan, our honorary consultant pathologist, has been appointed to the NHS NIHR College of Senior Investigators. The senior faculty of the NHS National Institute of Health Research includes some of the UK’s foremost researchers in clinical and applied health and social care. Prof Flanagan has been recognized for her work in sarcoma.
The Senior Investigators provide research leadership to the NIHR Faculty, promoting clinical and applied research in health and social care. They also help with planning and speaking at events, host visiting fellows and mentor Trainees. Alongside this, they form a network of experts, able to provide advice to the Department of Health's Chief Scientific Adviser.
Last month, Prof Flanagan was also awarded the William Gerald Medal by the faculty of the Department of Pathology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, in recognition of her outstanding contributions to research in cancer (sarcoma) pathology. The award is in memory of Dr. William Gerald, a former faculty member of the pathology department in Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
