Introduction of the latest annual report
This report, the fourth in series, reminds us of the role and importance of governance and peer review in our work. It summarises the Centre's published work during 2015 and current research activities. It presents two biographical pieces from current researchers in the Centre and an update on one of our alumni making a difference in another walk of life. We discuss the significance of cohort studies in light of the Centre's leadership role in the Headley Court-led ADVANCE study, which looks at the long-term outcomes of seriously injured servicemen from the recent conflict in Afghanistan. We introduce a new feature "In the Spotlight" to highlight other leading work from our collaborators in the areas of blast injury and trauma. The newly established Bioengineering Trauma Initiative is discussed, along with some associated work at Imperial College's Department of Bioengineering. The financial support of other funders is acknowledged. We conclude with a review of our media presence and outreach activities throughout 2015.
