Newcastle Clinical Trials Unit

Staff Profile

Georgiana Browne

Trial Manager

Background

I am a Trial Manager within the Newcastle Clinical Trials Unit (NCTU). I currently work on the following clinical trials:

  • Control, Fludrocortisone or Midodrine for the treatment of Orthostatic Hypotension: A Randomised Controlled Trial (CONFORM--OH)
  • A randomised, double-blind, placebo controlled trial of pramipexole in addition to mood stabilisers for patients with treatment resistant bipolar depression (PAX-BD)

As a Trial Manager I support investigators and sites with the set-up, monitoring and close-down of clinical research trials. Whilst working at NCTU I have worked on CTIMP trials from a variety of clinical specialties.

I have worked at NCTU since October 2019. Prior to working at NCTU, I worked within the clinical research team at Devon Partnership NHS Trust and Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust as a Research Practitioner (June 2014- Nov 2017) followed by Senior Research Practitioner (Dec 2017-Sept 2019). In these roles I led the coordination and recruitment for multiple commercial and non-commercial CTIMP and non-interventional mental and physical health trials.
