Eva Horvath-Papp - Chair

Hello everyone, after a good three years on the committee, I will now be taking the helm for LUMRS. Over the years, we have delivered many talks from inspirational speakers in medical research and linked up medical students to participating in research that has been published. We are hoping to bring you another year of the latest in medical research and a chance to explore the potential for research as part of your future and career.

Looking forward to meeting you at one of our events!

Rosie Bate - Vice-Chair and INSPIRE lead

Hey! I’m a newbie to the LUMRS committee but wanted to get involved as I head into my final year!

As well as being into research, I am a multi-faceted member of the committee, having previously been President of the UoL Pole Fitness & Dance society last year and secretary before that! I will do my best to support the Chair & committee members in their roles as well as taking lead for INSPIRE. I also attended the National Research Collaborative Meeting last November and look forward to liaising with other societies for the East Midlands Research Meeting later this year!

Outside LUMRS I have set up & led the NeST audit in Leicester for the Reconstructive Surgical Trials Network and collaborated in the OAKS-2 & IMAGINE audit for STARSurg. I can’t wait to encourage and inspire more students to get involved in research over this next year: if you have any questions about research & audits, please don’t hesitate to contact me (reb33).

Chris Bodimeade - Secretary and Treasurer

Hi I'm Chris, and after a successful first run on the committee for a year, LUMRS have decided to keep me on for another stint. I'll be helping out as both secretary and treasurer this year, which will be an interesting juggle, seeing as I'm also going to be a finalist. I have a keen interest in infectious diseases and all things parasitic. Don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.

Vanessa Rodwell - LINK Co-ordinator

Hi, my name is Vanessa Rodwell, and after one year's experience under my belt already, I will be continuing on my role as LINK co-ordinator. Keep your eye on our LINK page for upcoming projects and for applications!

Fariah Khalid - LINK Coordinator

Hi, I’m Fariah and I’ll be continuing to be one of your LINK coordinators alongside the lovely Vanessa. We managed to get students onto some great research projects last academic year and are hoping to do the same again - so keep an eye on our LINKs Page for anything that may seem of interest to you! If you have any specific questions, feel free to drop me an email at fk103

Ibrahim Haq - SPARKS Bulletin Coordinator

Hi everyone, I will be the Sparks bulletin coordinator for this year. This is a really enjoyable role as I will design and edit the LUMRS magazine. If you have any interest in writing about your research or intercalation activities, let me know and I can include it in the next bulletin!

Binay Gurung - Associate

Hi, my name's Binay, and as a former president, but future 5th year, I will be taking a back seat in the running of LUMRS. But never fear, I will still be here! Happy to help with any questions. My interest in research and academic medicine stems from my background - prior to doing medicine, I trained as a biochemist and completed a research Masters with a focus on neurodegenerative diseases. I have continued my passion for Neurosciences research at Leicester in Professor Flaviano Giorgini's lab alongside getting involved in other projects, some of which have been through the LINKs initiative offered by LUMRS. 

Georgina Yan - Associate

As a former vice-chair but also final year, I'm staying on to help the committee as an assistant role. I'm still nonetheless very passionate about research!
