TRANSLATE Trial Manager

I am the Trial Manager for the TRANSLATE Trial with SITU (NDS). The TRANSLATE trial is a randomised controlled trial of TRANSrectal biopsy versus Local Anaesthetic Transperineal biopsy evaluation of potentially clinically significant prostate cancer. I started this role in April 2021 and I am really enjoying it so far. 

Prior to this, I was the BRC Theme Coordinator and a Biobanker for the Translational Gastroenterology Unit (Nuffield Department of Medicine). I am originally from South Africa and moved to the UK in 2017. Before moving to the UK, I worked as a medical scientist in a respiratory research unit in Johannesburg, South Africa. I hold a honours degree in microbiology from Rhodes University in South Africa. When I’m not working, you can usually find me baking and cooking new recipes!
