I joined the CTRU in 2009 as a Data Manager. I graduated in Biomedical Science from the University of Central Lancashire and completed my PhD in Nutritional Biochemistry at the University of Sheffield. After my PhD I worked at PAREXEL International as the lead Data Manager on a wide variety of clinical trials. These trials were across a variety of phases and indications and included large multi-centre, international drugs trials which involved Europe, the US and Japan. During this time I also completed a post graduate certificate in Clinical Research at the University of Cardiff. I am responsible for the management of the data management group as well as being directly responsible for the data management of several CTRU studies.
