Further work continues in a new EU IMI project on enhancing sustainable patient engagement across the life cycle of medicine development, which commenced in early 2018.
In addition Stuart is responsible for co-leading a variety of consultancy and policy projects across a variety of stakeholders and areas. Stuart helps to further CASMI’s visibility, agenda, policy impact and its evolution, in its new location within primary care, through new collaborative projects and grant opportunities.
Stuart’s 16-year career in science has spanned a degree in Biosciences, a PhD in neuroscience, translational models of neonatal brain injury, early phase clinical trials and developing medical devices. A four-year move to Canada saw further research into stem cell treatments for cerebral palsy, coordinating a number of large observational studies in osteoarthritis, and helping to develop new models of healthcare. Stuart has extensive experience of multi-stakeholder projects, grant applications and publications.
In his spare time Stuart is active with many sports, travelling, culture, volunteering, and pursuing the love of the great outdoors.
