Alex Ostler

Whiteley Clinic Research Fellow – 2013


Alice Whiteley Whiteley Clinic Research FellowAfter graduating from King’s College London University with a degree in Pharmacology, Alex continued her studies and is currently a third year medical student.

She spent the summer of 2013 working at Whiteley Clinics as a research fellow. Her main project was to investigate a new phenomenon – the presence of neovascular-type tissue in patients presenting to the clinic with primary varicose veins. Alongside this, Alex worked on a paper looking at the 5 year rates of revascularization of the strip tract following high saphenous tie and stripping.
