Our Research Team

Dr Paula Waddingham, PhD – Research Manager
I can offer a high level of expertise to staff to help them develop feasible clinical projects. It is preferable that staff consider a subject area which explores a clinical priority, or links into the departmental or Trust's objectives. Projects may be linked  to the dissertation part of degrees or clinical Fellowships. I am able to provide help for each of these levels; BSc, MSc, PhD and also post-doctoral. I am also able to offer supervision, mentoring and coaching during a programme of work and as part of the submission process for a Fellowship. I am on the Trust's approved list of recognised coaches. I am the contact person for queries with research or project costing.
