Judith Glynn left clinical medicine to come to the School in 1990 to do the MSc in Epidemiology. She went on to do a PhD (on the influence of infecting dose on severity of disease) and then joined the Karonga Prevention Study to work on tuberculosis and HIV in Malawi.
- Centre for Evaluation
- Maternal, Adolescent, Reproductive & Child Health (MARCH)
- Tuberculosis (TB) Centre
Judith runs courses on Molecular Epidemiology of Infectious Diseases, and also teaches on Extended Epidemiology and Epidemiology and Control of Communicable Diseases
Her main research interests are: Ebola transmission; the susceptibility of young women to HIV; the relationship between schooling and health; the impact of HIV on mortality and morbidity; HIV surveillance; the relationship between HIV and tuberculosis; molecular epidemiology of HIV and TB. Her current research studies are mainly in Malawi and Sierra Leone.
