Biography

Alison Avenell joined the Unit in 1998, as a Clinical Research Fellow. She was subsequently funded by the Chief Scientist Office (CSO) of the Scottish Government Health Directorates as a Clinical Research Fellow to undertake research in the MRC funded RECORD trial, which examined the effect of calcium and/or vitamin D supplementation in the secondary prevention of osteoporotic fractures. She also led the MAVIS trial which examined the effectiveness of vitamin and mineral supplementation in preventing infections in older people, and helped lead the SIGNET trial of glutamine and selenium supplementation in critical illness. She was a CSO funded Career Scientist and currently has a clinical chair in health services research and is an Honorary Consultant in Clinical Biochemistry, undertaking systematic reviews and randomised controlled trials of treatments for adult obesity, and under-nutrition in clinical practice.
