Dr Lucy Walton: our first Research Fellow

Lucy WaltonLucy started working as a full-time ‘Research Fellow’ in the Diagnostic Imaging Research Programme in March. She will contribute to PhD supervision, research and grant writing.

This is the first time we have employed someone into such a post at Salford and we have been able to manage this as a result of our growing success in terms of research outputs and activity. This is therefore an exciting new post for all concerned.

Lucy comes to us from The University of Manchester and her PhD involved an interdisciplinary project characterising the relationship between artery structure and mechanical function during ageing and in diabetes.

I asked Lucy how she felt about joining the DIRP. She said

‘I am delighted to be joining the team at Salford. The post is a great opportunity for me to establish myself in the research domain. I am looking forward to working with a variety of people and being able to contribute some of my knowledge, experience and idea’s in mechanical and structural tissue characterisation to develop new and ongoing projects’
