Alison Glover

I started my professional career in Psychiatric nursing back in the 1980s after that in the 1990s I branched into more clinically based nursing in Infectious disease and specialised in Nursing patients with HIV/AIDS, which is where my interest in research began, I spent some years working on clinical trials which were dedicated to developing new treatments for AIDS.

In 2004 I took up a post with the Blood Transfusion Service and have been privileged in supported a number of studies in the emerging world on Regenerative Medicine. My biggest pleasure out side of work is art, music and the theatre Im sure my friend would suggest I have an eclectic taste in the arts I am never happier than when wondering around art galleries, soaking up the atmosphere at music events or attending the theatre.
