About

The London Surgical Research Group is a trainee research network which focuses on multicentre audit and research. It was established in 2010 and has grown to a membership of over 700 members. Our work has been in areas related to surgery, but has certainly not been limited to general surgery only. Topics have stretched into other specialities such as anaesthetics. See our projects and portfolio for more details on our past and present work.

Audit and Research Together

By Trainees For Trainees

We are a network of surgical trainees run by surgical trainees. That means the interests of our trainees are at the centre of what we do.

Project Selection

We aim to support all project proposals. All project ideas are reviewed by the committee and then developed in partnership with the project lead. When all details are in place the project is released to the network.

National and External Projects

We aim to support all national projects and external projects from other collaboratives that are of relevance to our members.

Meetings

The committee holds approximately 4 meetings per year to deal with running the network and progressing projects. Anyone is welcome to attend by request.

Elections

The committee is elected each year at the Annual General Meeting in January. All places including the chair are available to stand for.

Senior Mentors

The LSRG has a number of associated senior researchers who provide guidance and support to its members. If you would like to offer your expertise please contact us.

Sponsorship

Currently the LSRG does not receive any sponsorship. If you would like to provide sponsorship in return for exposure to the over 700 of the next generation of surgeons and researchers then please contact us to discuss.
