      Hi Carmel,

      Most of my training is as an in-vivo scientist and most of my work uses animals. However, I do sometimes help with planning of human studies and the work I do with the animals helps to guide any work we then do on humans.

      I have taken part in a humans study in the past as a volunteer and that was a very interesting and useful learning experience.
