Rebecca Dennis


Clinical Trial Manager

Rebecca joined the National Perinatal Epidemiology Unit (NPEU) as a Clinical Trial Manager in January 2024. She is currently managing the BASE trial, which is investigating the use of sodium bicarbonate to treat metabolic acidosis in very preterm babies. 

Rebecca has a Master’s degree in Chemistry from the University of Oxford. She also has a background in mathematics and statistics, and is a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries (IFoA). Prior to joining the NPEU, she worked as a general insurance actuary in the City of London for over 10 years. 

After deciding to move into the health sector, Rebecca recently gained clinical experience while studying as a student midwife at the University of Surrey. During this time, she gained first-hand experience of caring for mothers and babies in the antenatal, intrapartum and postpartum periods.
