Dr. Alice Beardmore Gray
CRADLE 4 Trial Coordinator
Alice is a specialist trainee in Obstetrics and Gynaecology working at St Thomas’ Hospital, London and is currently the Trial Coordinator for CRADLE 4. She has worked with vulnerable women in a variety of different settings including Sierra Leone, Tanzania and Ghana. She recently contributed to research into anti-retroviral adherence in Rwanda and spent 6 months working to improve emergency services in a South African hospital as an NHS Global Health Fellow. Her experiences have highlighted to her the unacceptably high burden of disease that women in resource-poor settings bear and she is determined to address this inequality. Alice sees research as being a fundamental tool in bringing about long term change and making a difference to women’s lives. Pre-eclampsia is one of the top five preventable causes of maternal mortality worldwide and Alice has a keen interest in working out how we can prevent its devastating consequences.
