New Faces and Well Deserved Promotions

Kirsty Hope joins us as Associate Director. Kirsty has worked in pharma research for the past 9 years and has led multiple projects in qualitative and quantitative methodologies. She has recently completed a Masters in Health Psychology and has a keen interest in behavioural economics and how we interpret and action our findings.

Her role at Adelphi includes making key contributions to the market access team and applying her widespread therapy area knowledge, especially in MS and rare diseases. In her spare time, you’ll find Kirsty walking in the countryside, at her local pub or experimenting in the kitchen!


Parisa Valadan joins us as Research Executive
Parisa recently graduated with a first-class degree in BSc (Hons) Medical Sciences from the University of Leeds,
where she was selected to spend her third year studying at the University of Sydney. A familiar face to Adelphi,
she spent two summer placements with us whilst studying. In her spare time, she enjoys exercising, as well as cooking and baking.



Claudia Knight has been promoted to Senior Research Executive.
Since returning from maternity leave in February, she has made excellent progress to achieve her promotion, including contributing to the quantitative team initiatives and the development of the Connexions brand.




Lianne Hitchen has been promoted to UK Operations Team Lead.
Lianne will be increasing her responsibility for the day-to-day management of our supplier network, looking at new technologies and ways of working, as well as coaching and mentoring other team members.





Seb Newton has been promoted to Research Executive (Grade 2).
Being promoted after just 9 months with Adelphi is testament to his highly professional, can-do attitude
and his willingness to support the team and exceed our clients’ expectations.




Rebecca Marshall-Clarke will be leaving Adelphi in September to train as a primary school teacher. The move is fuelled by a passion that Rebecca has developed as a result of her working closely with her local schools and education authority, to ensure that her two children get the support they both need.
She joined the Adelphi Research Global team in 1999 as a graduate and has been an important member of the Adelphi Research UK team for the past 18 years.
Rebecca has made fantastic contributions to the business and we have seen her deliver many thought-provoking results, fostering strong relationships with clients. Together with several key clients Rebecca has won an incredible 8 BOBI Awards over the last 7 years!

It’s with great sadness that we say goodbye to Rebecca and wish her the very best of luck in her new venture.
