Since joining Costello Medical, Saoirse has worked on a wide variety of projects across the company’s service offerings, including medical affairs, HTA and publications projects. However, her particular area of expertise is in the design and execution of systematic and targeted literature reviews, both in support of HTA submissions and on more epidemiological subjects. It is her passion for these types of project that led her to establish the Evidence Development Division at Costello Medical in 2015, supported by a talented team of experienced and like-minded individuals.

In her role leading the Evidence Development Division, Saoirse is keen to establish a reputation for delivering high quality projects that are conducted rigorously and efficiently with the client’s strategic objectives in mind. She particularly enjoys providing her clients with strategic advice on best practice in the area of literature reviewing. Next to her work in the Evidence Development Division, Saoirse is actively involved in recruitment, co-managing Costello Medical’s Internship Programme.

Saoirse has a first class honours degree in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge, a Distinction in her Masters from the Royal Veterinary College, London, and a Postgraduate Certificate in “Health Economics for Health Care Professionals” from the University of York.
