Dawes has been involved in ongoing clinical trials across the world that involve over 45,000 people. In addition to generating over 190 publications, two patents and four book chapters, Dawes’ research has been translated into teaching, practice and clinical training locally, nationally and internationally. As Deputy Director of OxINMAHR, which is nested within the Oxford Academic Health Science Centre (one of only six Department of Health accredited centres of excellence) and her role within the Oxford Biomedical Research Centre she is engaged in wide public involvement programs and numerous multidisciplinary collaborations that lead to improvements in patient care, community health, and enriching environments for her research team. Her research is translated into practice through the Clinical Exercise and Rehabilitation (CLEAR) innovations which enable children and adults with long-term conditions to participate in physical exercise and rehabilitation programmes.
Since OxCATTS’ inception in late 2018, Dawes has acted as Scientific Manager to develop smart approaches to support innovators, researchers and health care professionals to co-design and evaluate health innovation and technology.
