Indrani Manoharan

BSc, MSc, PhD


Clinical Trials Manager

My role involves managing and supporting multiple trials (HABIT, BWEL-B, BARACK-D) within the CTU and also contribute to research publications.

I completed my Masters in Molecular Genetics at the University of Leicester and my PhD in Medical Oncology at the University of Glasgow.

After training and working as an academic researcher, I moved into the field of clinical trials to gain a better understanding on how research impacts people in real life. My experience includes working within the healthcare sector (NHS) across various regions in England.

I have supported and lead on a range of trials (CTIMP, non-CTIMP, device trials; phase 1 to 3, industry-sponsored and non-commercial) in oncology, orthopaedics, gynaecology, gastroenterology, wilderness medicine, cardiology, infectious diseases etc, both nationally within the UK and internationally in Europe, USA and Japan.

I manage and support various trials within the CTU some of which are listed below:

-> Health professional Administered Brief Insomnia Therapy (HABIT) trial. It is a pragmatic, multicentre, randomised controlled trial comparing nurse-delivered sleep restriction therapy (SRT) for insomnia disorder to sleep hygiene (SH) in primary care.
