London Centre for Neglected Tropical Disease Research
The London Centre for Negected Tropical Disease Research (LCNTDR) is an innovative research collaboration between Imperial College London, the Partnership for Child Development, the Schistosomiasis Control Initiative, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, the Natural History Museum, and the Royal Veterinary College.
The LCNTDR was founded to provide focused operational and research support for neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). Its aim is to use the expertise of its member organizations to answer key questions about NTD transmission, control, and programme implementation. These results can then inform policy makers of how to achieve the greatest impact on morbidity and mortality caused by NTDs.
More information about the LCNTDR can be found at www.londonntd.org.
Julia is a member of the NTD Epidemiology Research Group at Imperial, a member of the LCNTDR. Her primary research objectives are centred on the epidemiology and control of soil-transmitted helminths (STH) in South East Asia.
Julia's previous research experience has been in quantitative studies of infectious disease epidemiology and control, specifically respiratory infections. She has also worked in surveillance of infectious disease outbreaks. Her current research interests include NTDs, respiratory infections and surveillance of infectious diseases.
Julia holds a MSc in Control of Infectious Diseases from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and a BSc(Hons) in Biological Sciences with Infectious Diseases from the University of Edinburgh.
