Naomi (RN RM MAdvN MACN) is the Project Manager & Executive Officer for the MothersBabies Study at the MRC. She is a dual trained Registered Nurse and Registered Midwife (Distinction), with extensive experience working with children from birth to 18 years of age. Prior to working in research Naomi has nursed in oncology/haematology, neonatal intensive care (NICU) and adolescent health. She comes to the MRC with a strong background in the coordination in paediatric clinical research, assisting investigators and commercial organisations to develop innovative treatment methods and improve healthcare for children. Her passion for the microbiome and how it can impact on the long-term health outcomes stems from her midwifery training – healthy mothers (and fathers) are the key step in making healthy babies and children for the future.
