Donna is a University of Birmingham graduate with an honours degree in Biochemistry that included an industrial placement year at Celltech R&D, Slough (now UCB). Post-degree, Donna returned to Celltech as a Downstream Process Development Scientist in a GLP compliant facility. Joining Moredun Research Institute, Edinburgh, in 2004 as a Senior Research Assistant in veterinary immunology gave valuable experience across the disciplines of virology, bacteriology and parasitology leading to a move into monitoring veterinary Clinical Trials at Charles River Laboratories, Cumbria. From 2008 Donna was in the post of Trainee Project Leader, conducting both VICH GCP and GLP studies in a variety of species. As a direct result of site closure Donna took a position of Trial Co-ordinator at the University of Manchester operating a large phase III multi-centre study to GCP in the human field. In 2010, Donna returned to Cumbria and back to animal health for a position within Quality Assurance at Triveritas Ltd, acquired by Knoell in 2020, auditing not only VICH GCP and GLP studies conducted worldwide, but also aspects of GMP and 21CFR11 compliance in product development. Donna is also a member of the Research Quality Association and did reside on the Animal and Veterinary Product Committee.
