Anna Peel

Clinical Trials Coordinator

I have maintained a keen interest in research since completing my MA in Psychology in 2008. Working as a Research Assistant, Assistant Psychologist and Research Associate in academic institutions and more recently acting as Industry Coordinator for the Clinical Research Network (NENC) has ensured that I have experience in delivering as well as coordinating research.

In my role as Clinical Trials Coordinator for the JWMDRC, I help to coordinate the wide portfolio of trials delivered by the team. My work spans the early stages of developing and costing grant applications and assessing study feasibility, through to formal study set up activities and then monitoring study delivery. All aspects of my role involve adhering to Good Clinical Practice and ensuring that research is conducted in accordance with UK regulations and local guidance. I work collaboratively with teams within Newcastle University, the Clinical Research Facility and the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, together with Sponsors and Contract Research Organisations to get trials up and running as efficiently as possible.
