The research unit is headed up by investigators Dr Lawrence Barnes and Dr Susie Keast who are supported by a broad team compromising of Nickie Donlin (Senior Research Nurse) Lorraine Hurl (Research Nurse), Amelia Lewis (Research Co-ordinator) and Leanne Jones (Research Assistant).

The team has a wealth of research experience being active in Phase II, III and IV studies for over 20 years. Lawrence has been Chief Investigator for the UK on 2 previous studies.
