Dr Susan Smith, BSc(Hons), PhD

Methods Advisor, NIHR Research Support Service



I joined QMUL in 2023 as a Methods Advisor with the NIHR Research Support Service Hub delivered by Imperial College London and Partners. My job involves supporting researchers who are applying to NIHR and other nationally advertised, peer-reviewed funding programmes for applied health & social care research.


Before this, I worked for nearly ten years as a Research Adviser with the NIHR Research Design Service East of England, in a similar role.


My PhD and post-doctoral research projects were laboratory based, using cell and molecular biology techniques, as part of a Vitamin D Research Group. I’ve also worked in the NHS and several University settings as an academic researcher and in research governance roles. 


I’m currently a member of a Health Research Authority Research Ethics Committee and Crohn’s & Colitis UK’s Research Awards Panel.
