Fiona Moultrie

MBChB (Hons) BMedSci MRCPCH DPhil

Postdoctoral Researcher


Fiona completed her medical degree at the University of Edinburgh with an intercalated BMedSci in Neuroscience. She moved to Oxford to work as a clinical doctor on the Academic Foundation programme, during which she began working with Prof Rebeccah Slater. Fiona was awarded an Academic Clinical Fellowship in Paediatrics to continue studying the development of noxious-evoked brain activity using EEG. Fiona completed a DPhil at the University of Oxford investigating pain processing in the developing brain using EEG and functional MRI, funded by the Wellcome Trust and NIHR BRC Oxford. She was awarded the Trinity College Graduate Scholarship and Trinity College Graduate Prize.


Fiona is a Postdoctoral researcher primarily working on PETAL (the ParEntal Touch TriAL) and validating an EEG-based measure of pain for premature infants. 

In the long-term, Fiona aims to translate advances in our mechanistic understanding of pain processing in early life to improve pain management in neonatal care and identify safe, evidence-based analgesics.
