Natalie Lam


Natalie has joined the Academic Unit of Elderly Care and Rehabilitation in August 2018 as a Research Assistant.

Natalie studied nutrition and worked in clinical settings for her placement in her first degree. However, she spent eight years working in the Civil Service, while studying PG Diploma in Health Research and Master of Public Health in the University of Leeds.

In 2015, she had a career change. She worked as Clinical Research Officer in South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. Following her family’s move to Wiltshire in 2016, she worked as Data Manager in the Clinical Trials Service Unit in the University of Oxford. She mainly worked in randomised control trials in dementia and late-onset psychosis, while helping in coordinating follow-ups for large-scale trials in cardiovascular diseases.

Back to Yorkshire, Natalie is now assisting in the systemic reviews in the Academic Unit of Elderly Care and Rehabilitation, Bradford Institute for Health Research.
