Charlotte has a background in medicine, psychology, and philosophy. Her thesis projects included an investigation into the possibility of withdrawing diabetes treatment in the very elderly to increase quality of life in the last life years and the role of moral responsibility for disease in the treatment of overweight and obese diabetes patients.
Her research interests cover a range of topics and include non-communicable diseases, health behaviour, information processing, healthcare policy, access to healthcare, research and medical ethics, and rationale for treatment.
Charlotte works on a project about cancer fear at the Health Behaviour Research Centre of the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health. This project, which is funded by Cancer Research UK, focuses on the role of cancer fear in relation to early detection behaviours and
participation in cancer screening.
She is also writing up the results of her PhD, which investigates whether a research design n-of-one trials -conducted in small series- can facilitate research into off-label medicines for rare diseases. She investigated whether the (serial) n-of-one trial design can be used to circumvent the problem of there being only a few patients available to participate in clinical trials, and whether the pooled results of these n-of-one trials can be used to draft treatment guidelines and decide on market approval and reimbursement of these treatments for these patients. The case of (rare) neuromuscular diseases was used as an example.
