Professional Qualifications

I am an elected member of the ARUK MCRN clinical studies group in paediatric rheumatology. This UK selected group identifies the key priorities for research in paediatric rheumatology. These priorities inform both ARUK NIHR and HTA on priorities for action.

My primary remit is to identify priorities for research into bone health.

I am a committe member of the OMERACT group in paediatric rheumatology imaging. Through a number of consensus conferences and workshops we have defined the current evidence base for MSUS in paediatric rheumagology and identified research projects that need to be undertaken to develop the use of MSUS in paediatric rheumatology.

I am the elected  member of the British Society for Paediatric Rheumatology, representing research. I liaise with the board about current research being undertaken in paediatric rheumatology throughout the UK. With the board and members we identify priorities for research from clinicains throughout the UK and communicate with ARUK MCRN. This results in the  effective and efficient planning of clinical trials in the UK

 

I am chair of the NI R&D Trauma and Rehab transitional research group. This group interests and coordinates and funds small set up projects in the above fields to enable primarily new researcher to obtain preliminary research results to enable them to approach major funding bodies. historically we have been very successful. It is hoped that if R&D funding improves we will be able to make a greater contribution to tranlational and clinical research within the province





Awards And Honours/major Prizes

I was awarded woman of the year in Health in 2014 by the Belfast Telegraph
