Dr Poppy Lamberton

  • Senior Lecturer and Lord Kelvin Adam Smith Leadership Fellow (Institute of Biodiversity Animal Health and Comparative Medicine)

Research interests

The main focus of my research is utilising field epidemiological data, laboratory experiments and population genetics to understand population structure, transmission dynamics and the effects of long-term mass drug administration on neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) such as schistosomiasis, soil-transmitted helminths and onchocerciasis.

I am currently funded by a five year (2016-2021) European Research Council Starting Grant investigating ‘New approaches to characterise Schistosoma mansoni infections persisting despite mass drug administration’.
