Call for application - Chair of BNTRC

We are looking for a new Chair for the BNTRC. This is a very exciting time for the organisation, delivering a portfolio of studies on cauda equina syndrome, Chiari I, cranioplasty, and incidental meningiomas. We are planning two further randomised controlled trials and having recently published the Dec-CSDH trial in the New England Journal of Medicine, where the BNTRC played a pivotal role. We also contributed to the ongoing research evaluating the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, delivering a town hall lecture at the Society of Neuro-Oncology.

COVID-19 and 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic has been a very trying time for the NHS and medical research. Nonetheless, the British Neurosurgical Trainee Research Collaborative (BNTRC) continues its commitment in undertaking high-quality multi-centre research.

 

Our recent achievements include the completion and acceptance of our CovidNeuroOnc study in Neuro-oncology Advances, and playing a pivotal role in the now published Dex-CSDH trial.

 

We continue to deliver our portfolio of studies on cauda equina syndrome, Chiari I, cranioplasty, and incidental meningiomas. Additionally, we have started preparing for two further randomised controlled trials. More information about these will be available soon, so please check back regularly!

Finally, we continue to wish all our colleagues and their families good health and strength during this challenging time. 

Advancing Research through Collaboration

The British Neurosurgical Trainee Research Collaborative (BNTRC) is a research network open to all neurosurgical trainees/junior staff in the UK and Ireland. Our aim is to undertake high-quality multi-centre research studies. We are an initiative of the British Neurosurgical Trainee Association (BNTA) and are pleased to have the support of the Society of British Neurological Surgeons (SBNS) and the Royal College of Surgeons (RCS)
