Pedro Avilla

Senior Clinical Trials Manager

I have a degree in Cardiac-Respiratory Physiology. After graduating in 2009 in Porto, Portugal, I moved to the UK in 2011 and worked for many years in the NHS as a Respiratory Physiologist. I started working in research at UCLH, which was the reason why I then decided to explore the “research world”. I worked for a few years as Clinical Trials Manager in a private research unit (specialising in COPD and Asthma trials). In the past 3 years, I was the director of clinical research at Queen Anne Street Medical Centre and was responsible for all the clinical trials activity within the unit. I’m joining OPRI as Senior Clinical Trials Manager and will help the OPRI team with the planning and implementation of new trials, and help with oversight of a few of the current ones like PREVAIL and MAGNIFY. I am very excited to join and work alongside the OPRI team and to be delivering high-quality research and help improve patient outcomes. I’m from Sao Jorge Island, a very small island part of the Azores Archipelago, Portugal (literally the middle of the Atlantic Ocean) and love cooking and exercising.
