Research Administrator

I am a Research Administrator working in the Health Behaviours team, which looks at interventions to prevent or treat ill health relating to diet, obesity and smoking.

I am currently working on two studies. The LightCOM study is a collaboration between researchers in Denmark and Oxford that is testing new weight-loss programmes. We are hoping to see whether these programmes can be used to improve current treatments for obesity as well as improving the long-term health and quality of life of people who are overweight.

I also work on the New DAWN study. For people who are overweight and have been recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, losing weight can put diabetes into remission. NewDAWN is testing a new treatment service to see whether it could be used to improve the diabetes treatment that the NHS currently offers.
