TMRN (Trials Methodology Research Network)
Congratulations to Dr Frances Shiely who was awarded the HRB TMRN SWAT 2020 award, for the second year running. The project was peer reviewed and awarded the highest marks. This year long project “Does patients’ guided self-reflection on their illness increase engagement with and recruitment to clinical trials: a mixed-methods study within a trial (SWAT)” will begin in September. Ms Ellen Murphy, BSC Public Health Sciences graduate, will take up a research assistant position to conduct both SWAT awards. Frances also secured two HRB TMRN Summer Scholarships for 2020. Ms Aoife O’Keeffe (3rd Year BSc Public Health Sciences) will work on a project on trial management and Ms Danielle Murphy (1st year BSc Medical and Health Sciences) will look at the role of the research nurse in predicting clinical trial outcomes.
