About Canniesburn Research Trust
We are appealing for your support to ensure the Canniesburn Plastic Surgery Unit, maintains its world-wide reputation as a centre of excellence in plastic surgery, training and research. None of the Canniesburn Research Trust’s work is funded by the NHS.
This is why your donation, no matter how large or small, is of such vital importance. Your contribution will allows us to initiate and continue research in many crucial areas of plastic and reconstructive surgery. The aims of the Canniesburn Research Trust formed in 1994 are:
• Promote research in all aspects of Plastic Surgery
• Encourage the use of the results of this research in surgical training and patient care, and make available for the general good of the speciality, the results of the research by means of publication in appropriate journals and by presentation at surgical and scientific meetings.
• Encourage the acquisition of advanced surgical skills through the establishment of training courses that are open to all members of the surgical profession.
