Dr Kate Oulton is a Senior Research Fellow and the Clinical Academic Programme Lead.
Kate first joined Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) in 1997 as a newly qualified children’s nurse. Following some time out of clinical practice to gain some research experience and complete her PhD, Dr Oulton re-joined the Trust in 2004, taking up a research post.
Dr Oulton leads a programme of research focused on children and young people with neurodisability and those whose condition is rare or undiagnosed. Inclusion and equality underpin her work and she has a particular interest in using creative methods to engage families in the research process, particularly hard-to-reach groups.
As the Clinical Academic Programme Lead, Dr Oulton aims to enhance the research culture at GOSH to make the clinical academic career pathway a more attractive choice for nurses and allied health professionals, ultimately leading to better engagement and interest in research and increased research capacity and capability.
