Dr Charlotte Warren-Gash
MRCP FFPH PhD
Wellcome Trust Intermediate Clinical Fellow
I am a Wellcome Intermediate Clinical Fellow and an honorary consultant in public health.
I trained in medicine in Edinburgh and London, then worked in public health in a range of local and national settings, including the UK Department of Health. Between 2009 and 2012 I held an MRC Clinical Research Training Fellowship to do a PhD at UCL, which examined the role of influenza as a trigger for acute myocardial infarction.
I joined LSHTM in October 2016 from the UCL Institute of Health Informatics, where I held an NIHR Clinical Lecturer post.
I am currently a visiting fellow at the Foundation for Genomics and Population Health - a specialist policy think tank in Cambridge.
I supervise MSc summer projects and PhD students and teach on the MSc modules Basic Epidemiology, Study Design, and Epidemiology & Control of Communicable Diseases. I am involved in delivering the short 'Introductory Course in Epidemiology & Medical Statistics' at LSHTM. I also contribute to Epidemiology Distance Learning and am a member of the programme Exam Board.
My research investigates the relationship between infections and cardiovascular or neurodegenerative diseases using linked electronic health records and biological data. This aims to inform clinical trials of interventions and strategies for personalised prevention.
