Candidates pitched their project live to a scientific panel and lay audience at our Strictly Research event, which formed the centrepiece of our 10th Birthday Conference at The Tetley in Leeds on Saturday 7 May 2016. Our Strictly Research judges Donald Salter, Karen Blakey and Pip Large awarded scores and offered feedback, and the audience of patients, families, fundraisers and supporters were invited to then vote for their favourite.
