The Millin Meeting 2023 will take place in RCSI on Friday, 10 November. This one-day event will focus on topics such as surgical research and surgical training, as well as hosting the 46th annual Millin Lecture, which recognises excellence in original surgical research.
This year’s Millin Lecture is entitled Marginal Gain Theory and The Power of Collaborative Research in Advanced Colorectal Cancer and will be delivered by Mr Michael Eamon Kelly.
Michael Kelly is a medical graduate of Trinity College Dublin, class of 2010. Following basic surgical training, he obtained his MCh from the Royal College of Surgeons Ireland (RCSI) in 2015, and completed the Specialist Training in General Surgery Program with a specialist interest in Colorectal Surgery (CCST) in 2021. He obtained his PhD in Medicine from the University College Dublin in 2022.
Michael has a strong research portfolio with >200 peer-reviewed publications centering around research in colorectal surgery. In 2015, Professor Des Winter and Michael co-founded the PelvEx Collaborative, which is an international consortium involving over 170 centers across 46 countries with the aim to improve patient care and survivorship through evidence-based research. Michael is the national representative for the European Society of Surgical Oncology, and is on the research and cohort committee for the European Society of Coloproctology. He is also on the editorial board of Colorectal Disease, BJS Open, and Cancers.
Michael is an active member of the faculty of trainers for core and higher surgical training schemes at RCSI. He has supervised over 13 MCh/MD/PhD candidates, and was recently awarded the inaugural Joly Leadership Fellowship from the Trinity St James Cancer Institute.
His experience in collaborative research has shown that Ireland can develop, lead, and deliver major research initiatives, and this is the focus of this year’s Millin Lecture.
