Research Statement

Dr Rohan Anand is a Research Assistant in the The Wellcome Trust-Wolfson Northern Ireland Clinical Research Facility. 

His current research explores how the methods in clinical trials can be improved and how evidence generated can benefit public health. This includes research into clinical trial outcomes, patient recruitment and retention.  He has publications in high impact journals that include the BMJ and Thorax. He submitted his PhD titled "Pragmatic methods within a randomised controlled trial in respiratory care" in 2021 which was passed without corrections. The thesis focused on how to best design, measure, collect and analyse outcomes in trials. This involved remote data collection and the use of novel technology. The research also explored novel Studies Within A Trial (SWAT) and included a systematic review investigating mucoactives in the critically ill.

Prior to joining Queen's, Rohan completed a BSc (Hons) in Biochemistry at the University of Liverpool and MSc in Drug Discovery and Pharma Management at University College London. He also worked within industry for contract research organisations Quintiles and Imanova. He has been a member of the Royal Society of Biology since 2014.
