Odette Dawkins

Executive Assistant to the Director of SITU and Clinical Research Co-ordinator

I joined the University of Oxford in 2018 and have enjoyed the opportunity to work alongside medical research in a number of areas.

My current post as Executive Assistant to the Director of SITU (Surgical Interventional Trials Unit) involves a variety of duties including the administration of the Trials Unit plus support to all trial managers and team members.

My additional role as Clinical Trial Co-ordinator has been a culmination of training and career development to form an active role in surgical and clinical trials both in their set-up and as active trials.

I also enjoy the opportunity to work within the department on delivering internal staff events and departmental projects. In addition to this, I am proud to be a Mental Health First Aider and hold a working committee place within the NDS Equality Diversity and Inclusion Committee.


In 2021, I received a joint NDS COVID Champions award in the category of Team Effort for the NDS Events.
