Mrs Caroline Kingdon
Research Nurse and UK ME/CFS Biobank Lead
I trained as a State Registered nurse at Guy’s Hospital, later specialising in hospice care before working as a nurse practitioner in a city GP practice with an ethnically diverse population. During that time, I chaired the local multidisciplinary mental health advisory group and helped to facilitate mental health education within primary care.
I helped to establish biobanks at Brown University in the US and in Qatar.
I joined the CureME team in 2013, where I have been responsible for the recruitment of participants to the UK ME/CFS Biobank and now coordinate applications for the use of their samples and data. A privilege has been to visit the participants most severely affected by ME/CFS at home in order to include them in the project. Latterly, I was a member of the NICE Committee revising the ME/CFS NICE Guideline.
