The Colt Foundation Research and Innovation Meeting highlights the academic work being carried out in the Defence Medical Services, alongside the longstanding Colt Foundation Research Prize which is awarded for outstanding research.

The meeting features speakers who are at the forefront of their fields and whose work is of relevance to the military in this time of contingency operations. The focus of the day is on podium presentations of research by the Colt Foundation Research Prize finalists and the Quality Improvement Prize finalists.

We will present military medicine research which defines defence medicine as a leader in research and innovation and will inspire future research in military medicine. 

In addition to the annual Colt Foundation Research Prize, two additional prize sections have been added and will be presented at this event:

  • The Colt Foundation Quality Improvement Prize
  • The RSM Military Council Essay Prize


Attendance is encouraged for all those with an interested in medical research, military medicine, or both.
