I am currently Director of the Clinical Trials Research Unit (CTRU) at ScHARR. After graduating in pharmacology and physiology from the University of Manchester and completing my PhD in neuropharmacology at the University of Nottingham, I worked at Sheffield and West Yorkshire Health Authorities in clinical audit and health needs assessment.
I joined ScHARR in 1996 to establish the North Trent Research Office, to provide support to local NHS organisations in developing research strategy and obtaining research funding. The remit of the CTRU is to support the design and implementation of clinical trials of complex health interventions. I am also Chair of the Yorkshire and Humber Regional Funding Committee for Research for Patient Benefit.
I am based in the Design, Trials and Statistics section.
