Research Fellow inspires next generation of clinical researchers

A specialist physiotherapist at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals has taken up a new role as a Research Fellow to complement the Trust’s clinical research activities and to help develop the next generation of researchers.

Julie Bury (pictured), who recently completed her Master of Science (MSc) degree in clinical research, has worked as a physiotherapist within the Trust for 12 years, developing a keen interest in research throughout her tenure.

Speaking of her appointment Julie said: “This is an exciting opportunity not only for me, but for the Trust and the patients we serve. I have been meeting with staff to discuss their research ambitions and to offer my support to help make them happen.

“Having a research-intensive Teaching Hospital is among one of the best assets that a community can have. It nurtures the next generation of researchers which is vitally important to the future of patient health care and attracts potential staff with an emerging reputation for innovative research.”

As a Research Fellow Julie will provide support to staff across all healthcare professions in their independent research activities, including training and funding opportunities. She is working collaboratively with Sheffield Hallam University and The University of Sheffield to increase and grow the research opportunities for Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals’ staff and patients.

Dr Trevor Rogers, director of research and development at the Trust, said: “I am delighted to welcome Julie. As Research Fellow she will promote research and clinical academic careers, including her own, to help us to achieve a research-active culture for the benefit of our patients.”
