ESICM Research Awards 2021

Hear from our past awardees 


The ESICM Research Awards are funded to enable both young and established investigators and clinicians to carry out basic or clinical research projects and develop, acquire, and apply advanced research procedures and techniques in the area of intensive care medicine.

Each week, some of our past ESICM Research Awards recipients will provide more information and details about their research projects and the single awards.

Kathy Rowan is Director of the Intensive Care National Audit & Research Centre (ICNARC), Honorary Professor at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and Adjunct Professor (Research) at Monash University, Australia.

In 1994, Kathy founded ICNARC, an independent, not-for-profit, scientific organisation to facilitate improvements in the structure, process, outcomes and experiences of critical care – for patients and for those who care for them.

In 2019, she won the ESICM Family Partnership Award, which is granted for projects covering families’ needs and expectations, care providers & patient interactions, long-term outcomes in ICU survivors.
