NZACRes Committee Members

Professor Richard Stubbs
President of NZACRes 2016/2017


I am an Otago graduate who spent seven and half years undertaking surgical training in the UK and US. Since returning to NZ in 1986 as an academic surgeon, I have been active in clinical and basic science research. In 1991 I established the Wakefield Gastroenterology Centre in Wellington, and in 1996 the Wakefield Gastroenterology Research Institute. Most of my research over the last 20 years has been investigator led, however in 2011 I became the Managing Director of P3 Research Ltd.
NZACRes is a very important Association for those involved in clinical research in NZ and has achieved a great deal since its inception in 2004. It would be my goal to see it grow through greater involvement of both senior and junior medical staff interested and engaged in clinical research. This would strengthen the Association and broaden its scope, while at the same time growing the opportunities for sponsored clinical research in NZ.


Zoe Breeze

I have spent the last 20 years in a variety of clinical research roles within the Pharmaceutical and CRO industry. In my current role as Quality Manager (GCP/GVP) for Roche New Zealand (Auckland), I am able to combine my passion for quality whilst still remaining close to clinical trials. My aim for 2016/2017 is to ensure NZ clinical researchers have access to important information and resources to assist the continuation of good quality research.

Ali Cameron

I hold the position of Research Advisor for the University of Otago, Dunedin School of Medicine.  I have worked in related positions since 2001 and for the first 9 years my position included the administration and contracting of the commercial clinical research undertaken in the local DHB.  Two children later I have returned to the NZACRes committee because I desire to see the Assoication realise its potential to support, encourage and develop the clinical research environment nationwide.

I have been privileged to enjoy a diverse background in the clinical research industry over the past 13 years. My experience began at the Malaghan Institute, where I established a GMP facility and ran the unit’s clinical studies. Following a move to the UK, I worked as an independent contractor at several large pharmaceutical companies where I performed country specific and European project, program, relationship and strategic management and development roles.

I am the Charge Nurse Manager (CNM) for Middlemore Clinical Trials based at Middlemore Hospital in Auckland.  While I still continue to coordinate a small portfolio of clinical trials, I spend most of my time juggling the needs of 20 plus research nurses and midwives.  In my spare time I am a part time student at Otago University studying bioethics, an area I feel passionate about.
