Dr Asma Soltani is our first winner of this joint award by RCPCH and Newlife the Charity for Disabled Children, which aims to identify and nurture a new generation of child health researchers.
Dr Soltani will carry out UK research into Rett syndrome, a rare genetic disorder. She says, "I am honoured to be the fellowship’s recipient and hope that I can achieve the level of medicine that will make an impacting difference on helping children with complex conditions that currently have no cure."
Back in April 2015, 10 young people and parents/carers launched RCPCH &Us, a new way for children, young people and families to get involved with our work across the UK.
