Clinical academia for the future: research leaders and innovators

09.30, Wednesday 03 April 2019

41 Portland Place London


To inform the Academy’s project on Enhancing the NHS-academia interface, the Academy of Medical Sciences held a one-day workshop at the Academy’s headquarters on 3 April 2019 to consider clinical academic research careers, leaders and innovators for the future.

The workshop convened key stakeholders from across industry, academia and the NHS to explore the current and future requirements for clinical academia careers. The meeting explored how to develop researchers, leaders and innovators that are equipped with the necessary skills to meet emerging healthcare challenges, and to embrace advances in novel practises and technology.

The workshop was chaired by the Academy’s Vice President (Clinical), Professor Paul Stewart FMedSci and comprised a series of talks and breakout group discussions to consider the clinical academic career requirements in the following areas:

  • Public and population health prevention
  • Discovery medicine
  • Disruptive technologies
  • Adoption of innovation in the NHS

A report of the workshop will be published alongside the overarching project report in early 2020.
