Lucy Turner brings with her extensive research experience and familiarity with HTAs and systemic review methods, work which has involved managing research programs, projects and initiatives of international collaborative teams. This frequent participant at HTAi Annual Meetings also sat on the Cochrane Collaboration’s Methods Board for over five years and is an active member of the research community taking on editorial appointments with academic journals such as Systematic Reviews Journal and conducting peer reviews for journals including BMJ, BMJ Open, JCE and Medical Research Methodology amongst others.
