During that time she provided high level legal and policy advice to a wide range of clients in the health and social care sector, specialising in the regulation of healthcare professionals. It was this work, in highly regulated environments, that led Annie to join the Wellcome Trust funded Liminal Spaces project on health research regulation at the start of this year.
