New Appointment - Dr Susie Jennings

Posted on: Friday, March 24, 2017

Dr Susie Jennings has joined the Thames Valley Clinical Trials Unit as Trial Manager for the “Early-years Provision in Children’s Centres (EPICC)” research study led by the University of Reading’s Professors Lynne Murray and Peter Cooper. Susie has a wide-range of relevant experiences, having previously worked for the Thames Valley Primary Care Research Network on the frontline between research academics and GP surgeries, as a Health and Wellbeing Officer for Berkshire Carers Service, and as a Freelance Consultant in Health Policy and Communication, coupled with an academic career that saw her completing her PhD at the University of Reading and lecturing for the Open University. This gives her a solid foundation for leading the operational side of the EPICC study working with 13 Reading Children’s Centres to see how the attending children develop and how this is influenced by the activities going on in the Centres. Furthermore, in these early stages of the CTU’s development, Susie’s background and skillset provide an invaluable source of expertise and abilities for the wider team to utilise.
