Professor Clare Surr to chair new NIHR Research Programme

Professor Claire Surr, who leads Leeds Beckett University’s Centre for Dementia Research, has been chosen to chair the brand-new National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) Research Programme for Social Care Funding Panel, following a formal application process.

Professor Surr said:  

“I’m excited to be part of this new programme and I’m looking forward to working with the NIHR on commissioning research that will make a real difference to those accessing and providing social care. The Research Programme for Social Care funding will hopefully increase the volume of social care research currently being conducted in the UK as well as growing the numbers of social care organisations that take part in and benefit from this research.” 

At Dementia Community we are fortunate to work with Professor Surr (Recent examples from our UK Dementia Congress 2023 youtu.be/QMi82N0NbrA?si=r9lW6dAa4rY0SBZc and our September 2023 webinar youtu.be/GMZe3efdfJ0?si=1CkN_QBhkAEzreJc)

We extend our warmest congratulations to Clare on this new appointment.
