Vicki Barber

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.
