Miss Amy Brenner
I am a Research Fellow in the Clinical Trials Unit. I work across a number of emergency care trials that investigate the effectiveness of tranexamic acid for the prevention and treatment of acute severe haemorrhage including postpartum, traumatic, intracranial and gastrointestinal haemorrhage. Before joining the School I worked in the Cancer Screening and Prevention Research Group at Imperial College London. I have a BSc in Biological Sciences from Imperial College London, an MSc in Epidemiology from LSHTM and 8 years experience in clinical research.
I act as a Practical Facilitator on several modules on the MSc in Epidemiology at the School, and as a Personal Tutor.
My current research is focussed on the methodological issues and biases that arise when conducting clinical trials in an emergency care setting. I am also interested in the interaction between time to treatment and the effect of tranexamic acid, the mechanism of action of tranexamic acid, and rebleeding in gastrointestinal haemorrhage.
