BSc (Hons), MSc, PhD
Senior Trial Manager
I joined the department in 2016 and I am currently the Trial Manager for ALIC4E (Antivirals for influenza-Like illness? An rCt of Clinical and Cost effectiveness in primary CarE) with Prof Chris Butler as Chief Investigator. The primary objective is to determine whether adding antiviral treatment to best usual primary care is effective in reducing time to return to usual daily activity. The trial is an open, adaptive-platform, randomised controlled trial, running across 21 networks in 15 European countries and we aim to recruit 2500 to 4500 participants over three flu seasons. The ALIC4E trial will be delivered as part of the Platform for European Preparedness Against (Re-) emerging Epidemics (PREPARE) European Commission consortium grant.
Within the CTU I am a tutor and facilitator on the Clinical Trial Management module of the MSc in Evidenced Based Health-Care.
Prior to joining the department I have worked on a number of national and international clinical trials in oncology and infectious diseases within primary and secondary care, from Phase I to IV. I have also completed a PhD at Cardiff University evaluating the patient management and diagnosis of Urinary Tract Infection in primary care.
