Martina Svobodova

Trial Manager

I currently manage the ROCS (Radiotherapy after Oesophageal Cancer Stenting) Study - Palliative radiotherapy in addition to self-expanding metal stent for improving dysphagia and survival in advanced oesophageal cancer.

With a background in health related social science research, I am following the career in clinical trial management and have the experience of management and execution of national multi-centered clinical trials. I am experienced in qualitative social science research, in particular applied clinical research and public health. My research interests include trial management and also mental health and psychological interventions for behaviour change (psychoeducation and self management in bipolar disorder). I am ambitious and keen to get involved with more projects, to learn more and increase my skills and knowledge of clinical trial conduct.
