The National Council for Osteopathic Research (NCOR) is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr Dawn Carnes as its new Director.

Dr Carnes is a Senior Research Fellow at Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry and will take up the part-time post as NCOR Director, in addition to her current duties, in May.  Dr Carnes will succeed Professor Ann Moore who has led NCOR since its inception. 

Dr Carnes trained and worked as an osteopath before embarking on her research career which has focused on exploring the evidence and research in the field of musculoskeletal pain.  She has also been involved with Tower Hamlets Primary Care Trust over the last four years and helped set up a community-based, primary care chronic pain management service.

Dr Carnes said: “I am delighted to have been appointed Director of NCOR.  I am committed to the development of research that can be used to promote the role that osteopathy has to play in healthcare provision.”

NCOR was set up by the General Osteopathic Council (GOsC), the British Osteopathic Association (BOA) and the UK osteopathic educational institutions (OEIs) in 2003 to foster research and raise the profile of osteopathy research findings.  It is jointly funded by the BOA, GOsC, the OEIs and the Osteopathic Educational Foundation.
