“Through CONNECT.ed I was recently matched with Pooria Sarrami, a Research Fellow at ACI Institute of Trauma and Injury Management. Pooria and I live on opposite sides of the country, so we decided it was best to have a phone link up. As we both have an interest in Trauma, it was great to speak with Pooria and learn about some of his research projects. Being CONNECT.ed with Pooria has given me a contact that I would not previously have found, and it has opened up partnership opportunities for the future.”
