Biography

Jayne started working life training to be a Registered General Nurse, at Nottingham School of Nursing. Post qualification she specialised in cardiothoracic intensive care nursing in the regional heart unit for the East Midlands in Leicester. Later she studied at Kings College London, for a BSc in Biology, specializing in Ecology and then at Leicester University for an MSc in Museum Studies specializing in DNA recovery from old biological specimens.

Serendipity in 1997 gave Jayne the opportunity to get involved in medical research, first collecting data from GP practices for a trial investigating guideline formats in angina and asthma (Department of General Practice, Leicester University) and a community study on depression in the elderly (Department of Epidemiology, Leicester University). During this time Jayne gained experience in systematic reviewing which led to a post in 1999 as systematic reviewer on a project investigating Chlamydia trachomatis (Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Aberdeen University).

After her very enjoyable stint in Scotland, Jayne joined Birmingham University in February 2001 to join the West Midlands Health Technology Assessment Collaboration based in the Department of Public Health, School of HAPS. The first four years were spent working on reviews for customers such as NICE and the Department of Health, before becoming a reviewer and analyst for ARIF, where she undertook rapid literature assessments for customers within West Midlands PCTs. In December 2010 Jayne became Senior Systematic Reviewer in the Cancer Research Trials Unit within the School of Cancer Sciences working on reviews to support their Paediatric Trial portfolio.
