Ben Marson

NIHR Doctoral Fellow,



I am a PhD student conducting a study into the important outcomes following fractures sustained by children.

My undergraduate training was completed at the University of Wales College of Medicine. I completed an intercalated BSc in Medical Physics at University College London where I also learnt to play canoe polo. Between my third and fourth year I was invited to contribute to an undergraduate research opportunity at MIT where I was involved in building a satellite to test the effects of space travel on bone and muscle strength.

Following graduation, I was a Foundation Doctor in South Wales and gained experience in orthopedics in Haverfordwest and Bridgend. My core surgical training was in Gloucestershire and prior to starting this PhD I was a NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow here in Nottingham.

Research Summary

1. CORE-Kids: Development of a core outcome set for use in trials involving children with broken bones

2. ANCHOR Study: a feasibility randomized controlled trial to compare supportive bandage, removable splint or plaster cast for the treatment of children with low-risk ankle fractures
