Fellowship for Mike

Dr Mike Backhouse has been elected as a Fellow of the College of Podiatry and received his award at the recent College of Podiatry conference in Liverpool.

   

The award is made in recognition of a 'distinguished, sustained, and significant contribution' to podiatry and it is thought Mike is the youngest recipient of the award.

   

Mike is a Senior Research Fellow in the Institute of Rheumatic and Musculoskeletal Medicine and an NIHR Clinical Trials Fellow within the Institute of Clinical Trials Research here in Leeds, and his programme of applied research aims to reduce the burden of foot and ankle problems in people with long term conditions.
