DMD Research Nurse
Rebecca graduated from Edge Hill University in 2013, and was awarded with a bachelor of Science degree in Children’s Nursing. She received her first nursing post at a Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, working as a staff nurse on a medical specialty ward from 2013-2018. She then joined the clinical research team in 2018 and was assigned to the DMD research post in March 2020, before she was seconded to assist with COVID-19 research studies.
Rebecca is currently working with the Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Research team. She co-leads on numerous DMD trials and works alongside a team of DMD research professionals. Her role helps to assist the study sponsors in finding better and safer treatments for children and young people with DMD, and hopefully in the future to find a cure.
