Ruth Tunn

Research Fellow in Trial Methodology (CONSORT & SPIRIT Reporting Guidelines)

My main areas of interest are clinical trial methodology and transparent, complete reporting of randomised controlled trials. I joined the Oxford Clinical Trials Research Unit (OCTRU) and Centre for Statistics in Medicine (CSM) in May 2022 as a Research Fellow in Trial Methodology. I am working on the MRC–NIHR-funded project to update the SPIRIT 2013 (Standard Protocol Items: Recommendations for Interventional Trials) and CONSORT 2010 (CONsolidated Standards Of Reporting Trials) Statements.

Before joining the OCTRU/CSM I spent seven years in Japan working in the researcher services industry, helping non-native English-speaking researchers and clinicians to publish their research. I reviewed and edited manuscripts; trained freelance medical writers, reviewers and editors; and provided training on ethical and transparent reporting and English academic writing.

I completed a BA in Physiology in 2008 and a DPhil in Molecular Biology in 2013 at the University of Oxford, and am currently in the final stages of a part-time MSc in Clinical Trials with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
