David Gilhooly Award

David Gilhooly

Dr David Gilhooly was an HSRC (PQIP) Fellow who died unexpectedly in 2019. He was born in Ireland and trained as an undergraduate at St James' College Dublin, subsequently training as an anaesthetist. He came to London initially to do a clinical fellowship and was then appointed as an HSRC fellow, undertaking research based on PQIP towards an MD(Res) degree at University College London. He was appointed as a consultant anaesthetist at University College Hospital in 2018 but continued to work academically as well, and he remained a valued member of the research teams at UCL and the HSRC until his untimely death.

David developed expertise in systematic and scoping literature reviews, and in his honour, we are launching a prize to be awarded annually for systematic or scoping reviews which have trainees as first, senior or corresponding authors.

Full details of the prize, entry criteria and deadlines will be added here shortly.
