Senior Research Nurse



Research Interests:

Infectious diseases


Having trained as an RGN at North Lothian College, Edinburgh, fulfilling a staff nurse post and completing midwifery training at Foresterhill College, Aberdeen, Anne has spent a varied career working in the UK and overseas within the NHS, private, and charitable sector, before completing a Bsc in Nursing with Health Studies at Napier University. Anne’s research interest began in the ED at RIE in 2006, followed by many years in fertility research with Prof Anderson. In 2015 she undertook a deployment to West Africa, working with a team from Oxford University on a clinical trial treatment for Ebola Virus Disease. Going forward, Anne then worked with this team for Covid trials during the pandemic leading her to join the (then) newly set up Covid-19 Research Group. This joined the RIDU Research Team & thus Anne migrated to CIRG.
