Former Director of the Institute of Clinical Research. I have extensive experience of clinical research having worked in this area for more than 30 years. My experience in clinical research began in a Phase I unit and then progressed to Phases II-III and to Project Management. I have trained and managed CRAs in a wide range of therapeutic areas. I have also worked in the area of quality assurance, and conducted many European audits, before becoming Associate Director of Training for a CRO and subsequently a Director and Head of Education and Training at The Institute of Clinical Research.

Currently I conduct accredited GCP training courses for the NHS, Universities and the Pharmaceutical Industry in the UK and mainland Europe. The training may be conducted face to face or by webinar.

I also teach a research methods module on an MSc course. As a consultant, I provide advice and have worked with several institutions to help raise the standards of clinical research.

I have authored many articles and books on clinical research, career development and risk based monitoring topics and co-authored The Oxford Handbook on Clinical and Healthcare Research published by the Oxford University Press
