Jane Dunnage, Patient and Public Involvement lead, Lupus UK

After employment in various roles within communications, Jane Dunnage had such serious health problems that she had to leave paid employment. Nearly 5 years after this, it was confirmed that she had systemic lupus erythematosus. She eventually returned to study part time and achieved a BSc in Human Nutrition. Although her health does not allow her to work, she has been a Trustee for a number of charities (including LUPUS UK) and housing organisations: currently she is a Trustee of National Voices. She is lead for patient participation in MASTERPLANS, a consortium to study stratified medicine for lupus patients; this is a Consortium based at University of Manchester with a team of Patients and Industry Partners.
