Dr Emma Kampouraki


I joined the Univeristy of Leeds in 2020 as a Visiting Research Fellow. I am based at the Leeds Teching Hospitals Trust, where I work as a Specilist Clinical Pharmacist – Adherence research. 

I was awarded my PhD from Newcastle University in 2019. I was appointed a post-doctoral Research Associate at Newcastle University for 1.5 year before I joined the Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust and the University of Leeds as a Research Pharmacist, working on the ‘Adherence to DOACs and statins’ project, funded by the Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group. 

Research interests

My research interests include:

  • medicines adherence; baseline adherence, patient barriers to adherence to DOACs and statins, healthcare professionals’ adherence training,
  • factors affecting response to oral anticoagulants (e.g. pharmacogenetic variability, dietary implications, drug exposure in elderly patients)
  • pharmacogenetics of statins
