Rhea Zambellas

Project Manager

My career started as a nurse, working across a variety of surgical specialities in both the state and private sector, in London. I undertook my Masters at St George’s Hospital Medical School (University of London), and my thesis was on patient satisfaction in UK and non-UK patients.

I first joined the University of Oxford as a research nurse on a rheumatology study, in the Nuffield Department of Orthopoedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences (NDORMS). Over the next four years as a clinical trial manager, my main research experience was developed managing OVIVA, a large randomised controlled trial investigating oral versus intravenous antibiotics for bone and joint infections.  

During this trial, I was the chief investigator for a small qualitative study investigating the patients' and researchers' experiences of the site set-ups and the recruitment processes. I continued to develop my research skills as a Clinical Research Associate in the Department of Experimental Therapeutics.

I am currently studying part-time for a Professional Doctorate in Health
