Research Advisors

Our Research Advisors Dr Edwin Meijerink, Ali Cameron, and Diana Rothstein are able to provide information and advice about the research grants that may be available for your research.

As well as guidance about particular funds suited to your specific field of interest, they can provide advice about the documentation required for your applications. In some cases applications are submitted through a web portal and they can assist with this.

They are also responsible for preparing the contracts and sub-contracts that are sometimes required as a result of successful applications.

Clinical Research Advisor

Any research involving the use of the Southern DHB resources, facilities, patients or records must receive Clinical Research Approval before commencing.

The approval process involves consultation with clinical, academic and management leaders to ensure that the research is relevant and ethically sound, is able to be adequately resourced from both a financial and clinical perspective, and that any risks are properly assessed and managed.

Our Clinical Research Advisor, Ruth Sharpe, is able to help you negotiate this process and the documentation required. Our manager, Dr Dayle Matthews, is responsible for negotiating contracts with trial sponsors. Our administrative support, Michelle Sullivan, provides pivotal office support.
