Louise Cowen, Research Practitioner

Louise spent the first part of her research career working in Oncology and Haematology clinical trials at the Churchill Hospital. She started working as an administrator and a data manager and in 2017 she obtained an undergraduate degree in Psychology which enabled her to become patient facing in her role. Since then, she has guided research participants through a variety of observational and interventional studies and has become very passionate about making sure that patients have the best possible care whilst they are on a clinical trial and that information and opportunities in research are available to all service users. In her current position as Research Practitioner in the Eye Research Group, she co-ordinates multiple clinical trials and with the help of her colleagues and ensures that patient centred research with high data integrity is completed in the Ophthalmology setting.
