I am Deputy ISP Leader for the Food Microbiome and Health (FMH) institute strategic programme and Human Study Lead for Quadram Institute Bioscience (QIB). I am responsible for the Institute’s research involving human subjects and human tissue. One of my key roles is to advise on, and oversee, compliance with the International Conference on Harmonisation-Good Clinical Practice (ICH-GCP); the UK Policy Framework for Health and Social Care Research, the Medicines for Human Use (Clinical Trials) Regulations 2004, and the Human Tissue Act 2004.
I am Chair of the Institute’s Human Research Governance Committee and QIB representative at the Joint Research Governance Committee of the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals and University of East Anglia. I also sit on the Anglia Ruskin University Research Ethics Committee as an external member with professional expertise.
I have a proven track record of successful human study set up in academic and clinical settings in UK and LMICs (Low- and Middle-Income Countries). I have an active role in designing and delivering training on Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and ethical/legal issues in research involving human subjects or human tissue. I am also highly engaged in activities with research participants, patients, and the wider public to promote transparency and awareness of human research.
