Julie Darbyshire

MA, MSc, DPhil

Research Manager/Senior Scientific Officer

Julie’s academic interests focus on patient-oriented improvements in healthcare delivery, public understanding of research, the importance of publishing research findings for the lay audience, and psychological outcomes after critical illness.

Julie is the manager for the DECIDE Centre, running a series of NIHR funded service evaluations in the field of technology-enabled remote monitoring in health and care. She is also a member of the research team exploring decision making for high-risk surgery as part of the OSIRIS Project.

Previously Julie co-led the Quality Improvement workstream in the LOCOMOTION project with a focus on evaluating how Long Covid clinics are delivered across the UK.

As part of her DPhil in Clinical Neurosciences at the University of Oxford she investigated noise levels in the Intensive Care environment and the relationships between noise, sleep and ICU-acquired delirium. Julie has an ongoing interest in improving sleep quality and 'humanising' the ICU to benefit both patients and staff. 

Julie has previously worked for the University of Oxford Diabetes Trials Unit managing large scale international trials and was co-investigator for the 4-T Results Dissemination sub-study. Between 2021-2022 she was co-lead for the the Partnerships in Health, Wealth, and Innovation theme of the Oxford Biomedical Research Centre (OxBRC). This role included academic, financial, and personnel management for a varied research programme delivered through a multi-disciplinary research team based across several university departments and divisions within the local NHS Trust. 

Julie holds higher degrees in both art and science. Her Masters theses have explored the role of cultural conditioning on the populist view of science and scientists; summaries of which were commissioned by the LabLit website for a generalist audience
