Mr Elliot McClenaghan
I joined the department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology at LSHTM in November 2021. Previously I worked as a medical statistician at the UK Cystic Fibrosis Registry, where I designed and conducted post-authorisation drug safety studies and was lead statistician on a global registry collaboration on the impact of COVID-19 in people with cystic fibrosis. I studied Biomedical Sciences at Newcastle University and obtained an MPH in Public Health with a strong quantitative focus at Queen’s University Belfast.
I teach on the following MSc modules; Statistical Methods in Epidemiology and Advanced Statistical Methods in Epidemiology. I also teach on the Professional Certificate in Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacovigilance short course.
My current research focuses on vaccine effectiveness, clinical data linkage and epidemiology of COVID-19. I support the coronavirus school infection survey collaboration as well as a project investigating non-specific effects of vaccination in people with cystic fibrosis. My previous research has included pharmacoepidemiology, cystic fibrosis, global health and registry-based studies. As a member of the board of trustees of a small non-profit, Share Uganda, I support monitoring and evaluation, data collection and research activities relating to the charity’s public health programmes in collaboration with local stakeholders in Uganda.
