Mark Jit BSc PhD MPH

Professor in Vaccine Epidemiology


I work both at LSHTM and also in the Modelling and Economics Unit of Public Health England in Colindale.




I teach postgraduate and professional courses on modelling and economics of infectious diseases, both at LSHTM and elsewhere.


My main research interest is in epidemiological and economic modelling of infectious disease control interventions to support evidence-based public health decision making. In particular, my work has helped inform immunisation policy on a range of vaccines (including HPV, pneumococcal, rotavirus and influenza vaccines) in both developed and developing countries.
