Clinical Trial Manager
I joined SITU in November 2021 to work as a trial manager on the paediatric orthopaedic CPinBOSS study. CPinBOSS is a cohort study measuring the number of patients with cerebral palsy eligible for single event multi level surgery (SEMLS) in the UK. This study is led by Chief Investigator Tim Theologis and is now in follow up. In addition, I have recently started working on the set up of another paediatric study investigating the role of USS and MRI in diagnosing bone infection - PIC Bone, which is also led by Tim Theologis and Dan Perry (joint Chief Investigators).
My background is in psychology in which I have achieved a B.Sc. (Hons) degree, followed by a M.Sc. in Foundations of Clinical Psychology in 2008. I then worked as a research worker on a number of mental health research projects at St George's University of London and King's College Institute of Psychiatry before I returned to my hometown of Oxford where I joined NDORMS in 2014 as a research coordinator. In this role I assisted with the set up and delivery of both adult and paediatric musculoskeletal research projects. This is where I discovered my passion for paediatric orthopaedic research, leading me to my current role.
