Alice Guazzelli


Clinical Trial Manager

My role is Clinical Trial Manager within the Surgical Intervention Trials Unit (SITU) where I work on two clinical trials, SARONG and ART. SARONG is a Randomised Controlled Trial of intensive surveillance vs. standard postoperative follow-up in patients who had surgery for oesophageal and gastric cancer. The study is funded by NIHR and it is planned to start recruiting in April 2023. ART is an international multi-centre randomised trial which is comparing bilateral internal mammary grafting to single internal mammary grafting in coronary revascularisation. The current study is a 15-year follow-up funded by the British Heart Foundation which investigates the survival and clinical events in the research participants following at least 15 years from their coronary artery bypass grafting surgery.

Previously, I worked as a Research Fellow within the Colorectal Cancer Genetics Group at the Institute of Genetics and Cancer, University of Edinburgh. The main focus of my project was working on chemoprevention targeting colonic stem cell population in colorectal cancer models. Prior to that, I was awarded a PhD in Biological Sciences from the University of Salford, where my project at the Biomedical Research Centre involved working on new therapeutic targets for malignant mesothelioma.
