The SVT Research committee was set up in April 2016 to provide information and support to SVT members taking part in or setting up research projects.


The remit of the Research Committee is as follows:

  • Provide guidance relating to matters of research directly to the SVT Executive Committee.
  • Actively support SVT members (AVS and trainee) in participating and leading vascular disease related research that is of high quality, uses appropriate methods and is likely to produce good results
  • Support members in the proposals and application for large grants/fellowships
  • Provide research advice and guidance for members via the SVT website and newsletter
  • Improve and maintain the SVT research grant programme; review grant applications and provide funding recommendations to the SVT Executive committee
  • Develop and facilitate research collaborations with external bodies (e.g. Vascular Society, Vascular and Endovascular Research Network etc.) on behalf of the SVT membership
  • In collaboration with key stakeholders, we aim to develop consensus on research priorities


The chairman of the Research committee is Richard Simpson.

Other members of the research committee are Laura Scott and Steve Rogers.
