Clinical Research Assistant
Within my role as a clinical research assistant at CCRF I am responsible for recruiting and consenting participants onto research studies, collecting and processing clinical data for these studies and working in collaboration with a number of NHS trusts across the UK.
I am principally involved in the EVAREST study, which aims to improve the diagnostic accuracy of stress echocardiography in cardiovascular disease. This involves inter-disciplinary collaboration with Ultromics Ltd. and Lantheus Medical Imaging Inc. to investigate the impact of artificial intelligence and contrast agents in the diagnosis of cardiovascular disease. I am also involved in the TEPHRA study, which investigates the effect of exercise in the preventative treatment of hypertension in young adults.
In 2018 I graduated with first class honours in BSc Medical Physiology from King's College London. Whilst studying in London, I conducted a third year research project, and a subsequent research fellowship, investigating the effect of pedalling cadence on skeletal muscle oxygenation in cycling.
