UNITE Collaborative


The UK National Interventional Radiology Trainee Research (UNITE) Network is the first junior/trainee led research collaborative in interventional radiology. The collaborative was founded in January 2021 as a joint venture between IRJ and BSIRT. The initiative was created with the goal of encouraging students and trainees to partake in research, as well as providing support for juniors interested in an academic career. 

Our initiatives include running multi-centre projects, a monthly journal club and mentorship opportunities. The UNITE collaborative has successfully completed our first multi-centre audit project (MACAFI) - thank you to all of our collaborators!  Further studies are currently in development. 


Call for National Projects

Do you have an audit idea for interventional radiology that could be run at multiple centres? 

We are actively looking for project proposals to run as national scale audits. If you have an idea that you think may be the next UNITE project, even if it’s just an idea at this stage, please do get in touch with us with your proposal at bsirt@bsir.org
