Clinical research coordinator Emma, who is involved in NHS research projects on illnesses such as diabetes and cancer, credits her study for getting her to where she is today.
Having an interest in sciences from school, Emma pursued her goal to enter the world of science so that she could build a career out of what she enjoyed and found interesting.
Her course helped with learning and understanding the processes involved in clinical research and laboratories. The knowledge she gained during her studies helped her understand the research methods used in analysing different diseases and illnesses.
Emma really enjoyed her course and gives particular praise to her tutors who she says helped guide her in the direction she wanted to pursue.
She explains: “The tutors made learning really relaxed; they were easy to approach and really happy to explain areas where I wanted to know more.
“The research studies module helped me to understand what I’m doing as a Clinical Research Coordinator and will really help me develop my career further,” she added.
