We’re very pleased to share the news that on the 1st September, Professor Michelle Briggs joined the ARC-GM team as our Capactiy Building Lead.
Michelle, is the Florence Nightingale Foundation Clinical Professor of Nursing at Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT), and will be combining her new role with ARC-GM with her existing position at MFT, along her roles as lead for MFTs Nursing Midwifery and Allied Health Professional Research Unit and regional lead for NIHR Northern hub for 70@70 research leaders.
Michelle will be working with colleagues from the health and social care system, to lead on the development of our ARC-GM strategy and plans for academic career development, research capacity and capability building.
“I am delighted to be part of such a talented team of NHS and University colleagues who are passionate about the use of research within health and social care setting and driven to improve the advancement of research skills and understanding within Greater Manchester.”
One of the key early focusses will be to work with ARC-GM colleagues, other local National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) training leads and partner health and social care organisations within Greater Manchester, to deliver a programme of applied health research fellowships that support the internship, pre-doctoral, doctoral and postdoctoral career stages and a rolling annual programme of training and academic career development activities and mentorship.
If you’re interested in finding more about how Michelle has developed her own clinical academic career, and her tips for health and social care professionals who are keen to explore a research carer, you can watch her video from here.
This is part of a series of ‘building successful academic career’ videos with a range of people from different health and social care professions. These currently include Professor Nicky Cullum (Nursing), Professor Dawn Dowding (Nursing) and Professor Chris Littlewood (Physiotherapy).
We’ll be adding more videos over the coming months, so please keep checking the training and development section of the ARC-GM website and our Twitter account @ARC_GM_ for more information.
