I am qualified in adult and paediatric nursing and have a degree and PhD in biochemistry. I have many years experience in clinical trials management and have been responsible for oversight of trials at all stages – development, set up, recruitment, follow up, analysis and closedown, ongoing grant management and troubleshooting delays and problems with trial conduct and patient recruitment. I have experience in phase Ib, II and III trials, blinded, randomised, chemotherapy trials of licensed and unlicensed IMPs, trials involving radiotherapy, surgery, psychological interventions, exercise and devices, tissue collection of various types of samples for translational sub-studies as well as PK and PD aspects of early phase trials. Disease areas include various tumour types – lymphoma, myeloma, lung, colorectal, prostate, head and neck, oesophageal, germ cell, as well as non-cancer trials in paediatric orthopaedics, asthma, eczema, alcoholic hepatitis, psychology.
