Professor Diana Rose receives Wellcome Investigator Award
Along with an array of six outstanding international collaborators, Diana Rose, the first and only Professor in User-Led Research in the world, has received a grant which will fund a pioneering project.
Bringing together for the first time the different elements of user-led research, and going beyond the current highly influential ‘patient and public involvement (PPI) in research’ model, the three-years-long project will explore other approaches in the UK and abroad.
Professor Rose said:
‘This is my dream project. Nearly 30 years ago, I was involved in one of the first ever pieces of user-led research carried out by my local user group. So much has happened in the intervening years and this programme of work seeks to capture and conceptualise all these developments across the globe. It is a very exciting time although not always easy work to do. I hope this will be my legacy and of use to the new generation that is pushing forward the boundaries of user-led research today and in the future.’
