Dr Helen Kelly
Honorary Assistant Professor
My research is focussed on understanding the epidemiology of HPV infection and associated ano-genital disease among people living with HIV. This research aims to contribute to an understanding of appropriate interventions to control and prevent HPV related disease among people living with HIV, including the role of antiretroviral therapy on HPV infection and precursor lesions, and evaluation of current and novel screening methods for early detection of high-grade lesions
I am currently based at the Catalan Institute of Oncology in Barcelona evaluating novel screening methods for HPV related ano-genital lesions, primarily among people living with HIV. I am also involved in research aiming to summarise evidence on immunogenicity and efficacy against HPV infection and clinical outcomes of different HPV vaccine schedules.
I co-organise the module Control of Sexually Transmitted Infections and teach on the Vaccine Immunology module. I am a tutor on the module GCP, Ethics and Regulatory Affairs as part of the Distance Learning MSc in Clinical Trials.
