Overview

Siobhan joined the University of Exeter in March 2020 as the Director of the UKCRC-registered Exeter Clinical Trials Unit (ExeCTU) and Professor of Medical Statistics & Clinical Trials.  She is an experienced senior statistician and clinical trial methodologist, working across a wide range of clinical and healthcare areas.  Siobhan is a fellow of the Royal Statistical Society and has retained Chartered Statistician status for over 15 years.

She was previously the Director of the Peninsula Clinical Trials Unit (PenCTU) and lead of the Medical Statistics Group at the University of Plymouth.  Prior to moving to the South West Peninsula, Siobhan was a research statistician for over eight years at the University of Glasgow Dental School.

Siobhan currently serves as Chair of the NIHR Research for Patient Benefit South West Regional Advisory Committee, having previously served four years as an expert member, as well as sitting on various funding and oversight committees as an independent expert member or committee chair.  She is also an expert reviewer of funding applications and final reports for a number of NIHR programmes, NICE and charity organisations and an active member of Directors’ Group in the UKCRC CTU Network.

Siobhan has a strong commitment to improving healthcare interventions that will impact on individuals and wider communities through high-quality evidence, including that gained through well-designed, and transparently reported, clinical trials.  She is a strong advocate of multi-disciplinary, collaborative working, seeking to bring the best out of all team members.  Siobhan is also passionate about mentoring and supporting early career researchers, with a strong track record in nurturing early career statisticians.

Research projects

Siobhan’s current project portfolio includes clinical trials of an investigational medicinal product (CTIMPs) and trials of complex interventions.

  • COVID Nurse (UKRI/DHSC CV19 Rapid Call, £430k) is a rapidly funded project to develop and evaluate a system of nursing care designed specifically for hospitalised CV19 patients in the UK. The first phases of the project are now completed, including a national survey of nurses, and the current phase is a rapid-cycle, cluster randomised controlled trial in 18 hospitals with a target of recruiting over 1000 participants.  The trial will be conducted in three waves, with the first wave due to start late autumn 2020, and will report in 2021.
  • COVID E-WHELD (UKRI/DHSC CV19, £1.2M) is a rapidly funded programme of studies building on a successfully developed and tested intervention for improving wellbeing and health of people living in care homes.  As part of the current project, the intervention will be refined to fit the context of the current CV19 pandemic and following a short feasibility phase, a large implementation study will be undertaken, with a total recruitment target of over 5000 participants in over 1000 care homes in the UK.
  • PROGROUP (NIHR PGfAR, £2.5M) is a programme of studies to refine and evaluate a group-based behavioural intervention for improving outcomes in people with severe obesity.  Following a short-phase of intervention refinement, the programme will move to a feasibility randomised controlled trial, recruiting ~60 participants from three sites in England.  If the feasibility trial shows the intervention and trial methods are acceptable and feasible, a definitive, partially-clustered, randomised controlled trial of an estimated 1100 participants across 10 sites is planned.
  • MIRAGE (JP Moulton, £300k) is a pilot randomised controlled trial of an intervention called functional imagery training, with the aim of the intervention to reduced alcohol-related harm in patients with alcohol-related liver disease.  The pilot trial is due to commence recruiting ~90 participants from three hospitals in 2021.
  • PARTNERS2 (NIHR PGfAR, £940k extension funding for definitive trial) includes a cluster randomised controlled trial of a complex intervention of primary case based collaborative care with standard care for adults with a diagnosis of schizophrenia, bipolar or other types of psychosis.  Final participant follow-ups are scheduled for the end of 2020, with analyses and reporting commencing in 2021.
  • D-PACT (NIHR PGfAR, £2.7M) is a programme of studies which aims to develop and evaluate a system for dementia support based in general practice for people with dementia and their carers.  The programme is currently testing the feasibility of delivering the intervention, with a planned cluster trial design based on the emerging data and early phase results.  It is currently envisaged that this trial will recruit around 600 people with dementia and their carers from approximately 40 GP practices in two or more geographical regions of England.
  • TARS (NIHR HTA, £1.8M) is a large multi-centre complex intervention trial to assess the effectiveness of health trainers to assist in both reducing and stopping smoking.  This randomised controlled trial aimed to recruit 900 participants from four recruitment areas, with recruitment via GP practices and the community.  The final participant follow-ups are due for completion in autumn 2020, with the trial due to report in 2021.
  • PD STAT (Cure Parkinson’s Trust/ JP Moulton Charitable Foundation, £808k) is a CTIMP using a relatively novel futility trial design.  This is the first study in The Cure Parkinson’s Trust international Linked Clinical Trials initiative and is designed to assess whether Simvastatin has potential as a neuroprotective therapy in Parkinson’s Disease.  Recruitment was completed in summer 2018 (over 235 participants recruited from over 20 hospitals) and the participants completed follow-up in summer 2020, with the results of the trial now being analysed. 
  • Vermis (MS Society, £300k) involves the assessment of a complex intervention to improve vertigo, mobility and quality of life of people with multiple sclerosis.  This is a complex project with two studies under one study protocol and started recruitment in early 2019. 
  • FREE-IA study (NIHR RfPB, £238k) is a feasibility study of a complex intervention for reducing fatigue in people with inflammatory arthritis.  This is a single arm, multi-centre trial which opened to recruitment in late 2018.  Final participant follow-ups are scheduled for autumn 2020, with the findings due to reported in 2021.
  • STRENGTHEN (NIHR PHR, £890k) is a recently completed pilot randomised controlled study of health trainers to support the improvement of health and wellbeing in individuals under community supervision.
