Dr Amy Hunter
Senior Research Manager
My academic background is in molecular biology, and I have had several managerial roles related to biomedical and psychosocial research.
My role as Senior Research Manager here at Genetic Alliance UK is to ensure that we are active in research that is relevant to patients and families affected by genetic conditions. I work with Genetic Alliance UK staff to ensure that we identify and act on any policy implications that arise from our research work.
I am responsible for managing our research projects, which are often carried out in collaboration with university researchers and clinicians, and for developing new research projects. Currently I am also writing training material for patients who wish to understand the process of drug development better, or who may wish to become actively involved in the regulatory process.
