“We are delighted to invite you to a virtual Educational research event, hosted by the NIHR, to be held virtually on Wednesday 3rd November 2021.

The Associate Principal Investigator Scheme is a new NIHR programme launching across all healthcare specialties in the UK. The Scheme pairs applicants up with a knowledgeable local study PI to act as a mentor, in order to maximise the learning and experience gained for the Associate PI.


If you’re a clinical professional and want to progress your career by taking your first or next steps into the field of research, then this is the scheme for you. Please feel free to forward this message to colleagues who may be interested.
