Jess Morgan is a part-time (40%) senior research fellow in paediatric oncology at CRD. She is also a part-time (60%) paediatric oncology trainee at Leeds Children’s Hospital. Her research interests are in the supportive care of children and young people with cancer, using systematic reviews, qualitative research and clinical trials. Within this, her particular interests are in febrile neutropenia, and in acute off-treatment follow-up after treatment for childhood cancer. Jess is also working on the REFoRMS project, which includes a systematic review of early phase trials for children and young people with relapsed and refractory rhabdomyosarcoma. Jess lectures on child health to undergraduates and teaches research methods to postgraduate paediatric trainees in Yorkshire. Jess is involved in a clinical twinning project between the Leeds paediatric oncology team and a health board in Cameroon, supported by World Child Cancer. The team are working together to develop a strong programme of childhood cancer research in Cameroon, to support their clinical twinning work.
