Dr Emily Sammons is a Clinical Research Fellow and DPhil student at the Clinical Trial Service Unit of the University of Oxford. She has particular research interests in diabetic eye disease and age-related macular degeneration. Alongside this she works on two large randomised controlled trials: ASCEND and REVEAL. ASCEND is studying whether aspirin and omega-3 fish oil supplementation protects against cardiovascular disease in people with diabetes.

Emily has background experience of working in General Medicine and a MSc in Public Health.
