The UK National Interventional Radiology Trainee Research (UNITE) Network is the first junior/trainee led research collaborative in interventional radiology, and was created with the goal of encouraging students and trainees to partake in research. The UNITE team meets regularly and runs multi-centre projects and educational events.
