I coordinate atrial fibrillation (AF) related clinical trials in the team of Professors Paulus Kirchhof and Larissa Fabritz, that are run throughout europe and beyond by the Atrial Fibrillation NETwork (AF-NET). My main role is to support UK secondary care sites in recruiting patients successfully and the studies I have worked on are EAST(1), AXAFA(2) and NOAH(3) all of which will lead to a positive outcome in clinical practice for the benefit of the patient across the world.

Biography

My first journey at the University of Birmingham started as an undergraduate in the school of Biosciences where I completed both my BSc (Hons) and MSc. Although my real passion was in clinical trials, my first graduate position was in the preclinical industry which gave me great insight in to the pathway of a medicinal product prior to first use in man. Thereafter I joined the NHS to work on a community based primary care cardiology study E-ECHOES(4) with a team of cardiology specialists where my interest in the subject rooted. My experience and training led me back to join the university to then work on a range of primary care based studies, again mainly involving the heart. I was introduced to Professor Kirchhof who was chief investigator on a number of AF clinical trials that required support in the UK and I have never looked back since!
