Subject groups/Research projects
Jane is interested in all aspect of soft tissue surgery, particularly oncological surgery and respiratory cases. Her clinical research interests are brachycephalic obstructive airway syndrome and non-invasive methods of evaluating respiratory function. She currently has research projects underway on evaluating brachycephalic airway function pre and post-surgery and the effects of different sedation protocols on respiratory function, working with a PhD student, Dr Nai-Chieh Liu. For more information on these studies please contact Jane on firstname.lastname@example.org or Nai-Chieh on email@example.com.
Whilst looking after surgical cases, Jane also teaches the final year students, primarily by small group teaching on clinical rotations. During these rotations the students are taught the basic principles of soft tissue surgery, theatre asepsis and post-operative management, including multimodal analgesia. Whilst running the clinics, Jane also supervises residents and interns. She also lectures to the 4th and 5th year students covering systems and surgical principles.
