Patricia Pezo Coutinho Ciccone
HSCB Laboratory and Clinical Studies Manager
I started working for the University in 2012 in the Cardiovascular Division after completing my PhD in Clinical Biochemistry at Harvard Medical School.
After working a few years as Research Assistant, I transitioned into Lab Management and moved to the Wellcome Centre (DIL).
Currently I work as a Lab & Clinical Studies Manager at the WIMM for the HSCB Lab that encompasses 3 groups (Mead, Psaila, Jacobsen) in MHU.
My role involves procurement and grant management, day to day maintenance and liaising with facilities.
I am also responsible for H&S within the HSCB lab as well as managing all the Clinical Trial Studies the groups participate in.
