Professor David Jayne, Clinical Director of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Surgical MedTech Co-operative, commented: “I am really looking forward to this exciting event. This is a rare opportunity that brings the whole community together to discuss the training needs and academic opportunities for health professionals allied to surgery. I am confident that we will produce some concrete proposals to grow research capacity and capability in advanced surgical technologies”. 

Professor Martin Birchall, Director of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Advanced Incubator for Surgical Technologies, commented: “The future of advanced surgical technology depends on the research contributions of those who need to be involved in its delivery. However, developing the research skills and careers of these surgeons, theatre nurses, ODPs and surgical care practitioners faces significant personal and systemic challenges. We believe that anyone interested in surgical technology research will find this meeting compelling. Come and join our online discussions so that we can progress theatre research careers together”
