Rodrigo Vieira Motta

Clinical Research Fellow

After finishing medical school in Brazil in 2020, Rodrigo joined the Cardiology department at the University Hospital - Federal University of Juiz de Fora, where he operationalised the Tobacco Clinic and wrote the protocol for an observational study that would assess risk factors for failure in smoking cessation in patients with multiple chronic comorbidities.
Soon after, he was accepted into Principles and Practice of Clinical Research (PPCR), a global programme offered by Harvard T H Chan School of Public Health. At Harvard, he learned essential abilities related to all aspects of clinical studies, from translational research to late phase clinical trials. He was also trained on scientific writing and advanced statistics.
Currently, Rodrigo is a clinical research fellow at the Translational Gastroenterology Unit. He is a sub-investigator in numerous commercial and academic trials studying autoimmune and metabolic liver diseases. He is also involved with the DeLIVER project, which is a Cancer Research UK-funded programme aiming to develop new techniques for early detection of hepatocellular carcinoma.
