IPCRG - Boosting Research Careers

07 Dec 2021

Back in May 2015 we awarded our first IPCRG Research Prize at the 4th IPCRG Scientific Meeting/1st IPCRG Research School, held in Singapore. The prize, a £10,000 research grant, was won by two young Malaysian primary care researchers for their proposal on asthma control. The two, Siti Nurkamilla Ramdzan and Hani Syahida Salim are now enrolled on PhD programmes at the University of Edinburgh. Chief Executive Officer, Si├ón Williams recently got a chance to ask them about their research and exciting career trajectory since their win.

Our two IPCRG research school prize-winners have published results from the initial work we funded, as their research careers blossom with their PhD programmes as part of RESPIRE:
Perceptions of childhood asthma and its control among Malays in Malaysia: a qualitative study 

Latest update December 2021

We are delighted to announce that Hani Salim has successfully defended her thesis and passed her PhD viva to become the second RESPIRE PhD.
