University of Tasmania
Sarah is the Research Integrity Coordinator and Deputy Manager, Research Integrity and Ethics Unit at the University of Tasmania; a role she has enjoyed since her move from Melbourne to Hobart in 2015. Sarah also looks after the portfolio of Clinical Trials Governance, having implemented a new process for the review and authorisation of clinical trial at the University.
Sarah has worked in research ethics since her first role as an Ethics Submission Specialist at Cancer Trials Australia 10 years ago, and takes great joy in supporting researchers to design and conduct high quality, ethical research that will ultimately benefit the wider community.
Education has always been a key aspect of Sarah’s roles, and she was instrumental in the development and delivery of an education program at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute with a curriculum in how to conduct research in line with relevant guidelines and legislation. In addition she was an invited lecturer for the subject Responsibilities and Ethics of Clinical Research, as part of the Graduate Certificate in Clinical Research at the University of Melbourne. Sarah continues to have a teaching role in Tasmania, running presentations for a number of groups across on the state on the responsible conduct of research.
