Our core team (see profiles below) is made up of senior clinicians and includes world-renowned researchers in HIV, Sexual Health, Hepatology and Population Health from Barts Health NHS Trust, Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry and Queen Mary University of London.
Supported by a programme manager, researchers, statisticians, clinical research fellows and other key roles, the team builds on the work of our well-established, world-class HIV clinical trials unit. We will work closely with partners across the wider health and care system, our community advisory board and voluntary sector organisations in the East End of London and beyond. We are proud that the SHARE team reflects the diverse communities we serve.
The SHARE Collaborative Community Advisory Board will provide a platform to ensure meaningful inclusion and authentic co-production of the research agenda with the local community, with board members being remunerated for their time and expertise. The board will inform every stage of the research process, from comment and advising on research topics, considering the direction, volume, diversity and applicability of proposals for research as well as acting as local champions. The board will provide advice on recruitment of research participants as well as the dissemination of findings. SHARE will train and employ peer researchers and aim to have a community co-author on research publications. We believe this approach will ensure our research remains relevant to the community in which it is conducted and reflective of Queen Mary and Barts Health values.
