Jenny completed her PhD in Trinity College Dublin in 2014. Shortly after completion, she took up the role of Clinical Trials Coordinator in the Children’s Clinical Research Unit working in the Department of Respiratory Medicine at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin.

She oversees all aspects of a clinical trial from site selection and set-up, patient recruitment, to study close out. She works closely with a team of Study Coordinators and with the Principal Investigator at each site, to review the study protocols, contracts, budgets and ethics submissions. She liaises with each Cystic Fibrosis multidisciplinary team, the relevant clinical research organisation and the study sponsor, to ensure all trials are conducted in compliance with ICH/GCP regulations, the study protocol and the site SOPs.
