Leanne Crowley

Programme Coordinator (Quality Control and Training)

I studied Forensic Science for 4 years at John Moores University graduating in 2018 with a B.Sc. (Hons).   

I started my role as a research technician in LITE in November 2018 where I was responsible for rearing mosquitoes and performing bioassays to determine resistance to new and repurposed insecticides.  

My current role within LITE (iiDiagnostics) is Programme Coordinator (Quality Control and Training). Within this role I work closely with the Quality Assurance Officer and Document Controller, preparing and presenting reports on KPIs, managing and updating the Quality Management Systems (QMS). I have developed and manage the training matrix for all staff and proactively identify skills gaps and ensure that there are trained staff available for all testing. My certificates include GCP, Introduction to GLP, Laboratory Health & safety (&COSHH), Auditing Course (RQA). 

While this was my first science role, I have worked in many different capacities prior to studying.  Some of my roles involved me managing teams, dealing with the public and with complaints, and supporting people who are vulnerable.  All these roles have helped me to understand the importance of the work we do within LSTM.
