Job Title: Head of R&D
Prior to taking on the role of Head of R&D for Birmingham Women’s and Children’s Trust in January 2018, I was R&D manager at Birmingham women’s Hospital for 8 ½ years. Prior to this I worked as a research assistant for a local mental health Trust, both devising and delivering research. I have a passion for research and have been involved in numerous NIHR grants as a co-applicant. I am passionate about making research accessible for all, and ensuring that research is integrated into the clinical pathway.
