Focus: Professor Freddie Flynn Bursary Prizes

Royal College of Pathologists

Professor Freddie Flynn (1924-2011) was responsible for major developments in UK Pathology in the latter half of the 20th Century. Although principally associated with developments in clinical computing, as Director of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) he laid the groundwork for the College’s CPD programme. He held numerous positions at the College including Vice President and Treasurer, and was also President of the Association of Clinical Pathologists. He donated funds to the College to establish the RCPath Flynn Lecture.

This year’s Flynn Lecture, ‘Lies, damned lies and statistics in research – improving efficiency and reducing the impact of misconduct’, will be given by Prof Alison Avenell, Aberdeen, at the ACB Focus meeting in Glasgow (1st – 3rd May 2019).

As the fund has grown, it has given opportunity to award four bursary prizes of up to £600 each for travel and accommodation to enable trainees to attend the ACB Focus meeting.

Any remaining funds will go towards the registration fee. The ACB has agreed to provide the award holders with complimentary registration to Focus and the conference dinner in any case.

Following the event, recipients are required to submit a short report for consideration to be published in the College Bulletin.

Applications are accepted from Medical or Clinical Scientist Trainees on recognised UK training programmes in Clinical Biochemistry/Chemical Pathology.

Please see the Royal College of Pathologists website for full details.

Applications must be received by the College by Monday 4th March 2019 and can be made via:
