Staff Profile

Heather Dowey

Research Support Secretary


In my capacity as Research Support Secretary, I support Dr John-Paul Taylor,Professor Ian McKeith and the other team members on the third floor of the Biomedical Research Building, Institute of Neuroscience.

I work closely with Dr Taylor, providing administrative support to his research studies ACDC and VEEG Stim, and act as his PA on a day to day basis. This includes diary management, arranging travel and accommodation, provision of financial information on his C and RES account codes and general daily support in all matters.

I equally support Professor McKeith in a similar manner.


The majority of my experience was gained whist employed by Northumbria Police for twenty years, where I secured many roles at various levels.
