Mary Morrissey

I graduated from the University of Edinburgh and began my nursing career in the Scottish Liver Transplant Unit in the Royal Infirmary Edinburgh where I rotated between the ward and HDU learning valuable skills and developing my knowledge.

I then went on to work in General Surgical HDU in the Western General to further expand my HDU skills. It was here I first became involved in research working with the ERAS (Enhanced Recovery After Surgery) research nurse. I developed a keen interest in research which led me to applying for a job in the Clinical Research Facility at the RIE.
This interest sparked a passion and I enjoyed working at the CRF so much I stayed for 3.5 years. I gained a first-rate experience of working in a Phase 1 accredited research facility on commercial and academic trials as well as Phase1 trials. I always enjoyed working on fast pace, high intensity studies and so I felt a move to EMERGE would be an exciting and challenging opportunity!
I am very much looking forward to starting a MSc in Public Health in Sept 2017 part time. This is an area of interest of mine and I feel it will be highly beneficial to my current role and future career.
I’m happy to be part of a dynamic and influential team leading the way in emergency medicine research.
