Wellcome Institutional Strategic Support Fund profiles

Pete undertook a secondment to the Leeds Teaching Hospital Trust to shadow clinicians and industrial contacts in healthcare for incontinence. This has helped create new links and interest in the IMPRESS network which aims to bring together healthcare practitioners, academics and industry to engineer better solution for those with incontinence.

He said: “I found the ISSF scheme extremely valuable in providing the resources to build links and help develop a new area of research. I would recommend the scheme to colleagues, particularly early career researchers, and hope to see the scheme continue.”
