The LCRF is delighted to congratulate Dr Sinisa Savic, Consultant in Clinical Immunology and Allergy, Associate Clinical Professor at the University of Leeds and  NIHR Leeds Chapel Allerton CRF Site Lead who has been awarded a prestigious £2.4million Senior Research Fellowship by The Kennedy Trust. The five-year fellowship is awarded to researchers with a proven track record of excellence in the field of rheumatology or related musculoskeletal medicine.

The research fellowship will support a novel programme of research which aims to produce a holistic understanding of what underpins the disease process in patients with resistant disease, alongside specific findings to inform routine clinical practice.

Ultimately this programme will improve the diagnosis, treatment and quality of life for patients currently left underserved by innovation in the field. Dr Savic’s project will deploy advanced genetic methods and related techniques, taking advantage of the unique infrastructure at Leeds.
