BSc (Hons) PhD PGCE


Operational Lead NDS SITU

  • Clinical Trial Manager (PART Trial)

I am the Clinical Trial Manager for the PART Trial (Partial prostate Ablation versus Radical prosTatectomy). This is Phase III RCT with long-term follow-up. 800 men to be recruited over five years in at least 10 NHS Urology departments. Participant will be randomised to either Radical treatment (RP, RRT or LDR-B) or Partial ablation using IRE (Irreversible Electroporation) or HIFU (high Intensity Focused Ultrasound). I work in SITU (Surgical Interventions Trial Unit) and Freddie Hamdy and Richard Bryant are co-CI with Tom Leslie local PI.

I have been in research for over two decades. I hold an honours degree in neuroscience and a PhD in psychopharmacology from Nottingham University. I have worked at the University of Sussex and spent the last nine years in the Department of Psychiatry here in Oxford. During my postdoctoral career I have gained broad range of experience investigating brain function in both patient populations and healthy volunteers, using MRI and MEG. I managed a number of experimental medicine studies, phase 3 clinical trials and a device trial in collaboration with industrial partners. I am also a trained secondary science teacher and was Head of Biology before returning to research in 2013. I am passionate about public engagement and I am an In2Science mentor to encourage students into STEM.
