Professor Cindy Cooper is Director of the University of Sheffield Clinical Trials Research Unit (CTRU) based at ScHARR. After graduating in Pharmacology and Physiology from the University of Manchester and completing a PhD in neuropharmacology at the University of Nottingham, she worked at Sheffield and West Yorkshire Health Authorities in clinical audit and health needs assessment. She joined ScHARR in 1996 to establish the North Trent Research Office, to provide support to local NHS organisations to develop research strategy and increase research income. She has been involved in health services research and clinical trials for over twenty years and has held the position of Professor of Health Services Research and Clinical Trials since January 2014.
Cindy established the CTRU in 2006. The focus of the CTRU is the design and implementation of clinical trials of complex health interventions including trials of investigational medicinal products and devices. The aim of the CTRU is to support and enhance academic health research in the University of Sheffield in collaboration with NHS investigators throughout South Yorkshire and to develop a portfolio of academic work and publications.
Cindy was Chair of the NIHR Yorkshire & Humber Regional Funding Committee for Research for Patient Benefit between 2009 and 2012 and is currently a member of the Programme Grant for Applied Research Committee. Her research interests include trials methodology (particularly relating to pilot trials and recruitment and retention), psycho-social aspects of long term conditions and evaluation of complex interventions particularly psychotherapeutic interventions.
- Trials methodology, particularly pilot (external and internal) and feasibility studies
- Psycho-social aspects of long term conditions
- Health technology evaluation
- Evaluation of psychotherapeutic interventions
- Public and patient involvement in research
