Weyinmi Demeyin started her PhD in August 2015, which is funded by PenCLAHRC. The project is titled N of 1 trials and the individualization of drug treatments, with the aim of exploring the value of N of 1 trials as clinical interventions, to facilitate the individualization of drug treatments in patients. The initial stage of the project involves a systematic review which will examine whether N of 1 trials can successfully be used to achieve an individualised treatment strategy and it will also help to identify outcomes of importance to patients. The final stage of the project is the design of a pilot intervention, and associated outcome measures, to determine the clinical effectiveness of N of 1 trial.
Weyinmi graduated from the University of Benin with a degree in Dentistry. She worked as a Dentist for two years before going on to study for an MPH at the University of Birmingham, after which she worked at Cardiff University as an assistant systematic reviewer for a year prior to starting her PhD.
