We are delighted to share the news that Susan Tansey is being elected as a Fellow of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health from the 1st July.
Susan, who joined Boyds as a Consultant Pharmaceutical Physician in 2019, is a paediatrician with specific expertise in respiratory paediatrics and neonatology. Since leaving her post at Alder Hey in Liverpool over 20 years ago, she has been able to make use of her clinical and paediatric training to help in her clinical research work.
Her focus lies in supporting clinical trial work and helping to develop safe and effective medicines for children although also working in other therapeutic areas. Through her collaboration with both clinical and industry colleagues, she is helping to contribute to the improvement of child health.
Professor Alan Boyd, President and CEO of Boyds said: “I would like to congratulate Susan on being elected as a Fellow of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, as this recognises her expertise in the development of medicines for children and the benefits this has brought to these young people.”
The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health is the membership body for paediatricians in the UK and around the world. Founded in 1996, and with around 19,000 members in the UK and internationally, it plays a major role in postgraduate medical education, professional standards, research and policy.
Fellowships are more often awarded to practising paediatricians and Susan’s election as a Fellow gives recognition to her role in child health from an industry perspective.
