Prof Helen Stagg

Prof. of Infectious Disease Epidemiology

United Kingdom

I initially trained at the University of Cambridge in the life sciences (cell biology, immunology, virology; PhD) and later at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (epidemiology, MSc). I have worked with industry, and national and international policy making/influencing bodies (particularly the Scottish Parliament, National Institute for Health and Care Excellence UK, European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, and the World Health Organization). I have previously held a European Respiratory Society International Short-Term Research Training Fellowship, National Institute for Health Research Postdoctoral Fellowship, and a Chancellor’s Fellowship (tenure-track) at the University of Edinburgh. I currently have a Medical Research Council Career Development Award, as well as an honorary contracts at University College London and the University of Edinburgh.

I am a member of the World Health Organization's core grouping for the European Tuberculosis Research Initiative, a Fellow of the Young Academy of Europe, and was the co-chair of UK Academics and Professionals to End Tuberculosis with Prof. Bertie Squire 2020-2022.
