ACCELERATE News and Events!
'Co-developing training for researchers with patient involvement' was written by Helen Craig, Linda von Neree, Anna Mamwell and ACCELERATE Manager Kim Gurwitz. A story of co-developing a translational research training resource for researchers with patients and members of the public. In 2020/21, a year where the patient voice is especially in need of being heard, Helen and colleagues share their story of collaboratively producing a training resource.
ACCELERATE Potential is an online, self-paced, open-access short course covering an introduction to translational research, how to get started, and where to find support. Open to all, at UCL and beyond.
UCL's Translational Training Manager, Kim Gurwitz, reflects on 18 months of the ACCELERATE programme, which inspires 100s of researchers to positively impact healthcare through translational research.
Two teams have each been awarded £10k to help fund their original ideas to tackle healthcare challenges after taking part in an 8-week training programme for leadership, communication, and teamwork.
Three additional teams have each been awarded up to £10k to help fund their original ideas to tackle healthcare challenges after taking part in a 7-week training programme.
ACCELERATE Innovation launches the Mentoring Learning Hub; a series of workshops for UCL researchers keen to know more about mentoring.
