Julie Darbyshire

MA, MSc, DPhil

Research Manager/Senior Scientific Officer

Julie manages the Partnerships in Health, Wealth, and Innovation theme of the Oxford Biomedical Research Centre (OxBRC). This role includes 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’s own academic interests focus on psychological outcomes after critical illness, patient-oriented improvements in healthcare delivery, public understanding of research, and the importance of publishing trial results for the lay audience. Prior to joining the department Julie 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. 

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

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.
