Dr Anne-Marie Harrison BSc, PhD, FHEA

Senior Lecturer in Healthcare Science


Anne-Marie was appointed to her position as lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University following a BSc and PhD Chemistry from Sheffield University. She has worked in Chemical Pathology and commercial IT. She is closely involved with ensuring the BSc Biomedical Science course meets the professional body (IBMS) requirements.


She was appointed to her position at Sheffield Hallam University with a BSc Chemistry from Sheffield University, a MSc Pathological Sciences from Sheffield Hallam University-Sheffield University (joint) and a PhD Chemistry Sheffield University.

Following her BSc degree Anne-Marie was employed in Chemical Pathology at Sheffield Children’s Hospital where she worked in routine biochemical testing of patient samples and also in the specialist unit for investigation of inherited metabolic disorders. Following postgraduate study she was employed as a software engineer at EDS Sheffield and then at Synopsys Scientific Systems (Leeds). She then undertook a postdoctoral research term investigating complex RNA structures.

Since joining Sheffield Hallam University Anne-Marie has been involved in the organisation and running of several CPD courses for local NHS staff (Biomedical Science and anticoagulant testing). This, as well as her previous employment, has led to extensive links with employers and she is now chair of the local Biomedical Science Employer Liaison committee. She is also course leader for BSc Biomedical Science and in this role have taken the course through two successful re-accreditation processes with the IBMS. She takes particular responsibility for students studying part time whilst in NHS employment and have developed work based learning modules for this group. Anne-Marie has maintained an interest in pharmacology and bioinformatics, particular anti-cancer therapy as the subject of my PhD research.

She is now acting as department lead for the Physician Associate postgraduate course and lead a module in cardio-respiratory medicine.

She runs final year projects in areas relating to public understanding of science, bioinformatics and analysis of clinical trial data.
