I joined the CTRU in May 2011 as the Trial Co-ordinator for a multi-centre randomised controlled trial, REPOSE (The Relative Effectiveness of Pumps over MDI and Structured Education for Type-1 diabetes).
I currently assist investigators in the design and costing of the research process and oversee the CTRU’s input into funded studies. I also have oversight of the Quality Assurance activities for the Unit.
Prior to joining CTRU, I worked with ScHARR Technology Assessment Group from July 2006, where I worked as an Information Specialist and Systematic Reviewer undertaking health technology assessments for the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) and the NIHR Evaluation, Trials and Studies Coordinating Centre (NETSCC).
My research interests are in the following areas:
- Clinical trial design
- Systematic reviews
- Controlled clinical trials
- Adverse event recording
- Clinical trials of Investigational Medicinal Products
- NIHR HTA-16/80/08- The MAGIC trial: Melatonin for Anxiety prior to General anaesthesia In Children (MAGIC)
- NIHR EME- 16/126/26- STAR-MS: Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation versus Alemtuzumab in Relapsing Remitting MS
- NIHR EME- 15/178/09- ASTIClite: Autologous Stem cell Transplantation In refractory Crohn’s disease – Low Intensity Therapy Evaluation
