The Neuromodulation Society of the UK and Ireland 2017 Research Grant Competition Results

The Neuromodulation Society of the UK and Ireland invited proposals for the 2017 research grant competition. Two grants of up to £2,500 were awarded for a research proposal, which may be in any field of neuromodulation research.

Applications were peer reviewed and a decision made by the Neuromodulation Society of the UK and Ireland Research Committee.

The winning projects were:

  • Dr Kavita Poply: A prospective single blind crossover design pilot study to investigate the dynamic brain imaging response to changes in frequency parameters in patients with spinal cord stimulation with intractable neuropathic pain.
  • Dr Anu Kansal: A Randomised controlled trial of Spinal Cord stimulation plus Usual Care vs. Usual Care alone in the management of non-reconstructable critical leg ischaemia (RESCUE): A Pilot Study

The funds may be used for a variety of purposes in support of a research project (e.g. small project grant, salary support, equipment purchase, running costs or additional funding to an existing grant).

Applications were open to all neuromodulation researchers in the UK and Ireland (nonmember applicants will receive membership for the duration of the grant). It is expected that the result of the research will be presented at the Annual Scientific Meeting (within two years of receipt of the award).
