We would like to thank the IHT Leadership Team for their invaluable contributions to the Institute this year. In addition to attending Leadership Group Workshops, contributions included acting as a reviewer for an IHT Grant Development Session, undertaking grant peer review, acting as a Networx facilitator, judging the EMCR awards, participating as a member of an IHT committee (Research, Diversity and Inclusion and EMCR), and supporting ADPRF applicants (providing internal review, acting as a reviewer at a development session or undertaking assessment). Without your support, these activities would not have been possible.

We also extend a special acknowledgment to our EMCR cohort for their increasing participation in the above activities.
