Staff Profile

Ruby Smith Whelan

Trial Secretary


I am the Trial Secretary on the SPIRIT 2 trial, dealing with queries and helping to maintain the day to day running of the trial. As the trial reaches the end of follow up, I will also provide comprehensive closedown and end of study support.  

I am also managing the archiving process on SPIRIT 1.

Previously, I worked on the AnTIC and NAIROS trials aiding with closedown (AnTIC) and study set up (NAIROS), as well as helping the Quality Assurance team with various tasks and providing archiving support for a number of trials.
