Lisa is a Senior Research Associate working on a National Institute for Health (NIHR) funded N-READY programme grant looking at improving the effectiveness of nicotine replacement therapy for smoking cessation in pregnancy through better adherence and adequate dosing. Lisa also coordinates the UEA Addiction Research Public Involvement Panel, which she established to help match public contributors with researchers working in the field of addiction research. She is also involved with setting up the new Citizens Academy at UEA.
Prior to this, Lisa worked as a Research Advisor and Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) Lead for the Research Development Service (RDS) East of England (Norfolk and Suffolk). She was also PPI&E Lead for the Norwich Clinical Trials Unit.
She has worked on a number of NIHR funded research projects, including home safety in the under-5s, medication adherence in women identified as being at risk of osteoporosis and health literacy in older people with chronic health conditions. She has extensive experience carrying out research in both academic and NHS research environments, and has a keen interest in PPI&E having started her research career in the voluntary sector, before becoming an evaluator for the Beacons for Public Engagement Initiative. This four-year programme funded by the UK higher education funding councils, Research Councils UK, and the Wellcome Trust, sought to establish a more coordinated approach to recognising, rewarding and building capacity for public engagement in university-based collaborative centres.
Lisa McDaid graduated with a BS (Hons) in Psychosocial Studies from the University of East Anglia and went on to complete an MSc in Social Research Methods at the Open University. She recently gained her PhD in Health Sciences at the University of East Anglia. Her research aimed to develop a greater understanding of teenagers who have more than one pregnancy using a mixed methods research approach.
Lisa is particularly interested in sexual health, smoking cessation, qualitative research methods and public and patient involvement in research.
