Trainee Research Network

The Ophthalmology Trainee Research Network is an initiative to support trainees to develop and conduct research in Ophthalmology in Scotland. It is a UK-wide Specialty Group priority, supported by National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and the Royal College of Ophthalmologists. The aim of the group is to develop more home-grown research and to support the next generation of researchers by providing them with the skills and experience necessary to develop and conduct research.

Scottish Ophthalmology Trainee Research Award

NRS Ophthalmology is pleased to launch the 3rd round of Ophthalmology Trainee Research Award (OTRA) funding. The OTRA supports Scottish Ophthalmology Trainees to develop a one-year research project within their post. The award provides funding for protected time to contribute to, conduct and lead ophthalmology research. This will strengthen the research culture and increase research capacity within ophthalmology. 

This opportunity is funded in partnership between Santen, the Chief Scientist Office (CSO) and NHS Fife.
