Senior Research Nurse

Sian Dalgleish

I graduated from the University of Edinburgh with a first class honours degree in Nursing Studies in 2016. I then completed my Master of Nursing in Clinical Research the following year, where I initially worked with the EMERGE team. I have always had an interest in Emergency Medicine and completed a clinical elective placement in an Emergency Department in the Philippines.

In August 2017 I began working clinically within Critical Care, in both the High Dependency Unit and Intensive Care; this role developed my confidence as a newly qualified practitioner and passion for acute care. After my experience with EMERGE during my masters, I jumped at the opportunity to work with the team again, and started in my role as a research nurse in October 2018. My particular research interests include neurology, pre-hospital medicine and military health.

I am excited to be part of such a dynamic and motivated team and look forward to working towards a shared goal of improving patient care.
