DR. KATIE FEATHERSTONE is a Senior Lecturer within the School of Nursing and Midwifery Studies, a Research Fellow within Cesagen and a collaborator within the MRC Centre for Neuropsychiatric Genetics and Genomics. Her current programme uses ethnographic methods to examine:
- the developments within neuropsychiatry and their clinical, social, and personal implications (MRC, ESRC)
- the hospital processes in the diagnosis and management of chest pain and angina that impact on variation in performance and patient outcomes (NHS NIHR Research for Patient Benefit Programme)
In addition, she is working with colleagues to deliver a programme of events to promote dialogue, debate and interaction between academics and publics, with emphasis on examining the fields of neuroscience and neuropsychiatric genetics.
