Welcome to our new Nottingham BRC Research Officers and NRRU Receptionist
We are pleased to introduce you to our new Nottingham Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) research officers who will be running research studies and trials as part of the BRC along with other research.
We also have a lovely new receptionist at our Clinical Trials Unit (CTU) who will be greeting all patients and volunteers when they arrive.

Suzy is our friendly new receptionist and has been at NUH previously, so knows a lot about how the NUH works, and will be the 1st person to greet research patients and respiratory clinic patients in our CTU.
Andrew has previously worked in the Emergency Medicine Academic Group at Leicester and is our BRC COPD research officer. Andrew is currently working on the COPD and Other Destructive Lung Diseases Cohort Study and will be leading a new COPD research study that will commence in the near future.
Lucy has previously worked in cancer research at NUH and is our BRC Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD/IPF) research officer. Lucy will be leading a new non-IPF ILD research study, as part of the BRC, starting in the new year and is also running 2 other IPF trials with Dr Gauri Saini.
Mohammad Ali (not shown in the above photo) or Mo for short, has previously worked in Diabetes research at the QMC and is our BRC Asthma research officer. Mo is shortly commencing the INCOGNITO Study with Dr Dominick Shaw and will commence asthma research studies in the near future.
They are fantastic additions to our team and we hope you will join us in wishing them all the very best in their new roles.
