Dr Ginny Gould

Biography

I graduated from the University of the West of England  with a BSc (Hons) in Applied Microbiology as a mature student following a career in Veterinary Nursing. I then went on to complete my PhD at the University of Bristol, studying the control of expression of antibiotic resistance genes in the gram-negative opportunistic pathogen, Stenotrophomonas maltophila.  I continued this work in my first post-doc position before a change of direction to a project investigating 'Student Learning Outcomes from Work Placements' with an interdisciplinary team at the University of Bath. I then moved back to the University of Bristol, working in clinical research within the Academic Rheumatology group working on and coordinating a number of different projects with a diverse group including researchers from a number of different organisations and disciplines.

In my current role I bring together my experience of working with interdisciplinary groups, my background in veterinary practice and my diverse range of research skills to ensure smooth running of the OH-STAR project. My work includes designing study questionnaires, data management, setting up protocols and procedures, study governance and liaising with collaborators.
