Four awards have been made to healthcare professionals in London by the Pan London Cancer Research Fellowships selection committee. The research areas cover the use of algorithms to predict non-small-cell lung cancer reoccurrence, health inequalities in local head and neck cancer services, supporting young patients living with cancer, and improving the linkage between imaging and pathology diagnosis. This year’s Fellowship Programme focus is aligned with the ambitions of the NHS Long Term Plan, with projects aimed at improving early diagnosis, addressing cancer inequalities and providing appropriate personalised care for people living with and beyond cancer. Awards were made following an open call for projects in summer and autumn 2023.

The awardees are Renato Enrique Venturelli Garay, academic clinical fellow in dental core training; Lorraine O’Leary, clinical nurse specialist; Harpreet Kaur Sekhon Inderjit Singh, colorectal registrar; and Alfred So, medical oncology registrar.

Professor Derralynn Hughes, Co-clinical Director of the North Central London Cancer Alliance, said: “The Pan London Research Fellowship Programme is an excellent opportunity for NHS clinicians to gain high quality research experience in cancer care and encourages further collaboration across London Cancer Alliances and Biomedical Research Centres. The programme continues to be competitive year-on-year and it was encouraging to see a wide range of project proposals covering our key priority areas throughout the selection process. The Selection Committee is delighted to have awarded these fellowships which inspire research participation across the healthcare professions and we look forward to seeing what they will achieve within the coming year.”

The Pan-London Cancer Research Fellowship programme is a partnership between three NHS Cancer Alliances in London – North Central London Cancer Alliance, RM Partners West London Cancer Alliance, and South East London Cancer Alliance – with support also from NIHR Royal Marsden Biomedical Research Centre and NIHR Imperial Biomedical Research Centre.
