Regional Champions

The Academy has established a network of Regional Champions to build on the already strong sense of collegiality across the Fellowship.

Champions  undertake activities in their area that increase connectivity amongst Fellows, raise awareness of the Academy’s work amongst the broader biomedical community, and facilitate engagement between the Academy and the Fellowship.

If you would like to discuss the scheme further please contact
