Zarah is an experienced Nurse and Biomedical scientist with specialisation in Neurosciences and Oncology (particularly in supporting early cancers from surveillance to therapeutics interventions) with a strong translational Clinical research background. As an advanced practitioner, she has worked in several senior roles within Clinical research at the Cambridge Biomedical centre for over 16 years, with the last 10 years being for the Cancer Cell Unit of the Medical Research Council at University of Cambridge. She passionately believes in putting the patient at the centre of everything she does whether this is academic teaching, research study, service development or supervision. Zarah is very pleased to have received a funding offer from University of Suffolk to pursue a PhD and looking to undertake an innovative study that will aim to redesign how end of life assessments are undertaken in critical care units, using methodologies ground in Health Care Design principles.
