Biography Jane’s early career was in molecular biology: first in allergology, then in relation to infectious diseases. She left the laboratory in 1998 and became a trial coordinator in the newly created Birmingham Clinical Trials Unit (BCTU). Amongst the trial she managed were LUNA, PD SURG and PLUTO. At that time, she was also intrinsically involved in the development of the “advice and support” function of the BCTU and collaborated with investigators from many disciplines in developing therapeutic trials in a wide range of conditions, including physiotherapy, psychiatry and neurology.

Jane’s main research interest continues to be the production of high quality evidence for health care interventions across the whole spectrum of women’s health. 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 current research is unique in its breadth, and is outstanding in quality and impact. She has also developed an interest in global perinatal health and collaborated with the World Health Organisation on a review of the distribution of causes of maternal mortality.
