Lucy Finnigan

BSc (Hons), MRes, PhD

Postdoctoral Researcher


Lucy is a postdoctoral research assistant interested in using novel magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques to identify and understand disease progression. Lucy is currently investigating an MRI technique named blood level oxygen dependent (BOLD) to identify disease in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. 


During her time at OCMR she was also the first author in a clinical trial for a treatment aimed at improving mitochondrial function in patients with Long COVID. This was the first randomised, double blind intervention for fatigue symptoms in patients with Long COVID. 


Lucy completed a PhD titled ‘The Effects of an Extracorporeal Circulation on Cerebral Perfusion during Cardiothoracic and Critical Care Procedures’ based at Liverpool John Moores University and Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. Her PhD investigated cerebral blood flow velocity and oxygenation during aortic arch repair surgery and a life support technique named extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in a paediatric population.
