JNDS is an open access, online only journal primarily focused on showcasing the top case reports written by University of Oxford medical students during their clinical studies. In addition, JNDS also welcomes submissions of high quality reviews on clinical topics and clinical research in all fields of medicine from researchers and surgical colleagues who seek a new and vibrant journal to disseminate their work.

In this latest issue, there are more case studies from our medical students and a report of the 2nd Oxford Surgical Innovation conference (OxSI), which showcased some of the innovations from Oxford surgeons partnering with engineers and featured insights into the future of surgical education. 

The issue also includes two invited editorials titled 'An Indispensable tool for ultrasound based diagnostics and therapies - Microbubbles' and 'Innovating surgical practice and policy: lessons learnt from the second Oxford Surgical Innovation Conference'.

Plus, Emily Hotine, NDS Athena SWAN Coordinator, gives an update on the department's priorities as we prepare to renew our Athena SWAN Silver award later this year.

New research by the Consortium for Organ Preservation in Europe (COPE) has found that a new method to transport donor kidneys, which uses a combination of cold perfusion with oxygen, can significantly improve transplant results, with less graft failure, better function and lower rejection of the kidney when compared to cold perfusion alone. For patients who need a kidney transplant this is a big step forward. The study, carried out in Belgium, The Netherlands and the UK, was published today in The Lancet.
