Celebrating surgical research and careers

NHIP Academy is hosting a special event to bring surgical researchers together to network and build collaborations in the craft speciality fields.

It is an opportunity for those interested in surgical research, including practising surgeons, undergraduate and postgraduate trainees who aspire to be surgeons, to come together and build relationships across the surgical community.

The session will provide attendees with the chance to chat about their academic surgical career path.  It will also include an exciting panel discussion focusing on different clinical academic routes from:

  • Emily Thompson (ACL)
  • Corey Chan (NIHR ACF)
  • Blaise Hickson (MRes)
  • David Hamilton ( Consultant Otolaryngology)

The event will conclude with the Grey Turner lecture by Prof Ian Chetter, Professor of Vascular Surgery at the University of Hull, on a decade of surgical wounds research (further details below)

Prof Chetter’s lecture, A decade of surgical wounds research

In Prof Chetter’s lecture, A decade of surgical wounds research, he will summarise a decade of surgical wounds research undertaken under his supervision. Prof Chetter will discuss how more than 10 million surgical operations are performed annually in the NHS, with the majority involving a wound created by surgical incision. Most incised surgical wounds heal by primary intention, with the wound edges closely apposed together. Surgical site infection is the most common complication and may lead to wound breakdown or dehiscence, resulting in an open surgical wound. Indeed some wounds are purposely left open to avoid this complication. These open surgical wounds are often left to heal from the bottom up by the formation of granulation tissue, known as healing by secondary intention.
