Professor Jane Daniels
Professor of Clinical Trials, University of Nottingham
Jane's early career was in molecular immunology. She left the laboratory in 1998 and became a trial coordinator in the newly created Birmingham Clinical Trials Unit (BCTU). As an experienced academic trialist, she established the Birmingham Clinical Trials Unit as the leading trials unit for women' health research in the UK. In 2017, Jane moved to become Professor of Clinical Trials and Deputy Director of the Nottingham Clinical Trials Unit, where she seeks to continue to develop her portfolio of research in women's health and complement this with trials in new clinical areas. She undertakes translational and definitive randomised controlled trials and test evaluation studies, and complements this primary research with systematic reviews and meta-analyses. Her portfolio of research is principally in women’s health, and she is particularly interested in menstrual disorders and pelvic pain. She was commissioned to conduct a series of systematic reviews of the classification, prevalence, diagnosis and treatment of pelvic venous insufficiency for the National Institute of Health Research. Jane Daniels declares that she has no conflicts of interest.
