BSc (Hons) ; FIoB; PhD
Oxford Clinical Trials Research Unit
As a scientist by training I have had an interest in healthcare research since 1998. Initially I undertook laboratory based research in the field of apoptosis and most recently in inflammatory markers in intensive care patients.
I have trial managed studies in general medicine, intensive care, paediatrics and most recently in obstetrics. I directed the INFANT study, a multi-centre randomised controlled trial which aimed to recruit 46,000 pregnant women in the second most expensive study ever funded by the NIHR HTA programme. I have been active in trial management for over a decade and most recently contributed to the upcoming revision of the UK Trial Managers Network Trial Management Guide.
As the hub manager of OCTRU I oversee all collaborations and take an active role in senior project management of most of the studies on our register.
