Congratulations to HSRU's Dr Heidi Gardner as she is awarded her PhD

HSRU’s own Heidi Gardner graduated from her PhD in the University of Aberdeen’s winter ceremonies on Friday 23rd November.

Her three-year PhD project was funded by the University of Aberdeen’s Development Trust, and supervised by Prof Shaun Treweek and Dr Katie Gillies, both based at HSRU. Both Shaun and Katie joined the academic procession at the ceremony, and by pure coincidence previous HSRU Director, and now Vice Principal (Research) for the University, Prof Marion Campbell, gave the welcoming address.

Her thesis, titled, ‘Making clinical trials more efficient: Consolidating and improving knowledge of participant recruitment interventions’, aimed to get to grips with the way that participants are recruited to trials, in the hope that a better understanding of the interventions and strategies would lead to a clearer picture of the current clinical trials landscape. Heidi said

Heidi is now a fully-fledged member of HSRU staff, working as a Research Assistant on trial methodology projects alongside Dr Katie Gillies and Prof Shaun Treweek. She will be moving on to a post-doc position within the Unit, leading her own project from March 2019. The project, titled, ‘A good use of time and money? Providing evidence for how effort is invested in primary and secondary outcome data collection in trials’, is funded by the Chief Scientist Office of Scotland’s (CSO) Health Improvement, Protection and Services Research Committee.

Congratulations, Dr Gardner!
