Translational medicine: the new paradigm of systematic reviews of pre-clinical studies

Event 1 Jan 2014

Dr Emily Sena. Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences, University of Edinburgh.

Dr Sena is a postdoctoral scientist researching the validity of preclinical studies at the Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences, University of Edinburgh, and a research officer at the Florey Neurosciences Institute, Melbourne, Australia.

Her research interests are in the use of systematic review and meta-analysis of preclinical studies to increase the understanding of critical facets of translational medicine and developing new hypotheses for testing in the laboratory. She is a member of a multicentre international research collaboration facilitating the pooling and analysis of data from a range of disease models  across the basic sciences.

As part of the research Dr Sena has developed an internationally accessible database, similar to the Cochrane library, to facilitate interpretation of the preclinical data used to justify progression to clinical trial.
