We are delighted to announce that in early February Virginia Govoni joined us as the new Head of HRP and JCRO. Virginia has a Master’s Degree in Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Technologies from the University of Bologna, and MPhil in Diabetes and Nutritional Sciences from King’s College London. She has 10 years’ experience in medical research settings, leading senior clinical academics to deliver major strategic and complex programmes and collaborations at Queen Mary University of London and King’s College London. Virginia joins us from Barts Charity, a healthcare charity based in East London, supporting local institutions to deliver innovative research and great healthcare to the local population. “I am very excited to start this new role. In the Brighton and Sussex area there is much potential to develop impactful research for the benefit of local institutions, staff and local communities. I am looking forward to developing these collaborations, building on local excellence and strengths in healthcare and medical research.”

With the launch of the HRP, we conducted a brief survey to understand the research landscape across Brighton and Sussex Medical School and the academic and clinical partners (University of Sussex, University of Brighton, Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and University Hospitals Sussex NHS Trust). The survey is now closed. For a summary of the findings, please contact us at our email address below. The results of this survey will be used to map the strategies for the three HRP workstreams of Infrastructure, Research Capacity & Training, and Academic Groups.
The official launch of the Brighton and Sussex Health Research Partnership will be on:
Friday 30 September 2022, 09.30am - 13.15pm
Space for US, Third Floor, Bramber House, University of Sussex.
At the launch we hope as many people working in health and care research from across the partnership as possible will come together, to learn about the HRP and contribute to its direction. We will hear from the executive and workstream leads about work already underway and plans for the next year. There will be plenty of opportunities for questions, and contributions. The programme will facilitate networking and should be a great opportunity to build the strong relationships we hope will define the HRP. Book to attend the event through the button link below.

Stall and stand space will be available for organisations and researchers interested in working with the partnership to showcase their work. Email us at email@example.com to book a space.
We very much look forward to seeing you there!
First HRP executive meeting. The work of the HRP began in earnest in June with the first meeting of the Executive. The group reviewed Terms of Reference of the Partnership’s workstreams and began work scoping the extent of partnership activity towards its first report to the Partnership Board meeting in September.
