What is our lectureship programme?
Over the last 25 years we have worked to build capacity in stroke research, funding over 100 research fellows as well as the UK's first Chair in Stroke. As part of our current research strategy we have gone much further, committing ourselves to building the next generation of research leaders through our lectureship programme. These positions will play a critical role in building a vibrant community of clinical and non-clinical stroke researchers across the UK.
What happened during the lecturer training days?
Last week, our lecturers attended two training days at our head office in London (Stroke Association House). These form part of a schedule of activity designed to ensure they have the skills and support needed to succeed in becoming the next generation of research leaders.
On the first day, lecturers from the third round of our programme (2016-17) took part in their first coaching workshop with us, along with researchers from the second round (2015-16).
On the second day, all of our lecturers were invited to an exciting programme of presentations, knowledge sharing and networking. We were delighted to welcome Professor Martin Knapp of the London School of Economics. He talked about the importance of social care research and how it may be influenced by, and impact upon, the work of our researchers.
