Dame Shelia Sherlock Research Prize

2017 Winner: Dr Fotis Sampaziotis

Each year BASL presents the Dame Sheila Sherlock research prize, one of the highlights of the annual meeting. This prize is awarded annually to recognise the enormous contribution of Dame Sheila Sherlock to the development of Hepatology as a discipline in its own right.
In keeping with Dame Sheila’s enthusiasm for fostering young researchers, this eponymous research prize is awarded to young investigators without substantive posts in either medicine or science for their research contributions in the field of Hepatology.

About Dame Sheila Sherlock

When Dr Sherlock started her medical career, little was known about liver disease. Her work helped to establish hepatology as a medical specialty. She pioneered the use of needle liver biopsy, which had been used purely as a research tool, based on the technique of Sir John McMichael; this improved understanding of the pathology of liver disease and is used in the diagnosis of liver diseases today. The liver unit that she set up at the Royal Free Hospital became the centre for both research into liver disease and the education of trainees in the specialty.

Dame Sheila was involved in the foundation of the British Liver Club in 1961, which subsequently evolved into The British Association for the Study of the Liver (BASL). She was one of our past presidents and the first recipient of The BASL Distinguished Service Award.

The winner of the award will deliver a lecture presenting their research during the Annual Meeting, 20-22 September 2017. This year the prize is free registration to the meeting, a place at the Annual Dinner at Warwick Castle and £1,000.

To apply
Please send one A4 sheet outlining the research and another A4 sheet listing up to 5 related publications to steve@basl.org.uk.

Submission Deadline - Friday 4th August 2017
