Number of years in clinical trial management

5.5 years

How did you get here?

I started off as the Research Assistant (2017) and then Research Co-ordinator (2018) in the Wellington Hospital Intensive Care Unit (New Zealand). I got the role in 2017 right after finishing my studies at Wellington University. I was very happy to get a science adjacent job and ended up loving the clinical trials space over working in a lab. In ICU I worked on a large number of trials mostly in post-op care for cardiac patients, nutrition for ventilated and sedated patients, antibiotics trials including REMAP-CAP, a large international platform trial. I worked in ICU until I moved to the UK from NZ in Jan 2021 when I started here as an Assistant Trial Manager. Last year, I became the Trial Manager for the PRINCIPLE Trial which is a large platform trial looking at re-purposed medications for the treatment of COVID-19 in the community. Final results TBA soon!

What education/qualifications do you have?

I have a bachelor’s in Biomedical Sciences (BMSc, 2016) specialising in molecular pathology. Then a master’s in Clinical Immunology (MClinIm, 2017).
