Dr Shelley Rhodes is Exeter Clinical Trials Support Network Manager and a Trial Manager currently working on several projects for the ExeCTU in the University of Exeter Medical School.

Dr Shelley Rhodes recently successfully completed a 4 year study COBRA (Cost and Outcome of Behavioural Activation). This NIHR-HTA funded research project was a two-arm phase III randomised control trial for people with depression to test the effectiveness of Behavioural Activation against the current NICE recommended treatment: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. The Chief investigator was Prof David Richards.

I’ve trained as a mentor through the UEMS Mentoring Scheme, supported by the UEMS Equality & Diversity Group, and would be available to provide PhD, peer and other mentoring opportunities. Please feel free to contact me, in confidence, so we can discuss this further. http://intranet.exeter.ac.uk/medicine/mentoring/
