Epidemiology & Demography
Prof. James Nokes
Recent work has focused on the integration of epidemiological and genomic data to infer transmission pathways at different scales of interest from the household to countrywide. This has led to a NIHR Global Health Research Project GeMVi (on the application of genomics and modelling to the control of virus pathogens in East Africa). The COVID-19 pandemic led to redeployment of the diagnostics, genomics, modelling and community epidemiology platforms to SARS-CoV-2, with Emergency Funding from FCDO/Wellcome and NIHR.
