Mrs Jane Vennik is Postgraduate research student within Medicine at the University of Southampton.

Jane completed an undergraduate degree in Biology at University of Portsmouth, and an MRes in Public Health (Primary Care) at University of Manchester, which she passed with distinction.
Jane is an experienced clinical research manager, proficient in developing, implementing and managing clinical trials, from both within the pharma industry and, more recently, within Primary Medical Care at the University of Southampton. 

Following the successful completion of the HTA-funded AIRS study (Autoinflation for the treatment of school-aged children with glue ear), Jane conducted a nested-qualitative study to explore the barriers and facilitators to the wider use of autoinflation in the primary care setting and this formed the basis for a successful application for a PhD studentship from the NIHR School for Primary Care Research (SPCR).  Jane is now in the first year of her studentship, and her research involves the development of a web information/training package to support the wider implementation of autoinflation in primary care.
