Fiona is a clinical academic and UKRI Future Leaders Fellow. An associate professor at the Kennedy Institute and honorary consultant rheumatologist at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, her PhD was in cartilage biochemistry. Since returning to the Kennedy in 2009 she has led an increasingly interdisciplinary team focused on the design and delivery of human studies which bring about clinical translation within the Centre for Osteoarthritis Pathogenesis Versus Arthritis. She won the British Society for Rheumatology's Michael Mason Prize in 2016 for work on biomarkers of joint injury and is the recipient of a recent UK Research & Innovation Future Leaders Fellowship to develop her work in osteoarthritis aiming for prevention of the condition after injury.
Danielle is a postdoctoral research associate in pharmacoepidemiology in the pharmaco- and device epidemiology group at the centre for statistic in medicine. She has a BSc in Mathematics with Statistics, a MSc in Statistics with Applications in Medicine and a PhD in Epidemiology. Her current work investigates how different trajectories of frailty over time affects risk of death and temporal trends in the frequency of lower back and shoulder surgeries in the England since 2000.
I am one of the clinical lecturers and orthopaedic fellows in trauma & orthopaedics. I studied medicine at Cambridge University for both my undergraduate and clinical studies. I completed my early surgical training in Oxford for a couple of years. I then undertook a DPhil in Orthopaedic Surgery with Professor Carr looking at the biology of rotator cuff tendon failure and commercially available repair patches. I was awarded an Academic Clinical Fellowship in trauma and orthopaedics in the Oxford Deanery. I took some time out to do a post-doctoral research fellowship in trauma and orthopaedics at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, predominantly focussing on the role of biological therapies in shoulder surgery. I was awarded a clinical lectureship in Orthopaedics at ST7 and have just completed my surgical training. I am a mother of 2 boys aged 2 and 6 years.
Tanesha Allen is a fourth-year DPhil student in the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit (WildCRU) in the Department of Zoology. Originally from Tacoma, Washington, USA, she completed an undergraduate degree in Animal Sciences at Washington State University and a MPhil in Zoology at the University of Cambridge. Her interest in reproductive behaviour led her to the University of Oxford where she currently researches olfactory communication and individual advertisement in European badgers (Meles meles). Recently, Tanesha combined her Zoology background with her interest in science communication/outreach by creating a school wildlife monitoring network with the assistance of the Abingdon Science Partnership, Science Oxford, the Sumatran Orangutan Society, and the Royal Society.
I am a postdoctoral research scientist in the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging where I am developing novel physiological magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and analysis methods for application in brain tumours and cerebrovascular disease. I have a BSc in Psychology, an MSc in Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience, a PhD in Physics, and a chronic illness.
