2016 BORS International Travelling Research Fellowships for Young Investigators

Following the initiation in 2007 of the very popular international Travelling Fellowships Scheme for Young Investigators, the Executive Committee has approved this scheme for 2016. The fellowship scheme is made possible by sponsorship from the British Editorial Society of Bone & Joint Surgery, publishers of The Bone & Joint Journal (formerly known as JBJS Br) and Bone and Joint Research.

The Scheme involves close collaboration with a number of international centres of excellence in musculoskeletal research and coincided with the iCORS meeting in Xian, China September 2016. We awarded 6 places, which have all been taken up by Iain Murray (Edinburgh),Paul Hindle (Edinburgh), Wayne Nishio Ayre (Cardiff), Harry Hothi (UCL), Alisdair Macleod (Bath) and Sarah Johnson Lynn (Newcastle). Congratulations to those who gained a place on this fellowship, they will be representing BORS on their travels.  Find out more about their exploits.
