Prof Anthony Scott awarded Wellcome Trust senior research fellowship

21 Oct 2019

Congratulations to MPRU senior investigator Professor Anthony Scott for receiving the Wellcome Trust's Senior Research Fellowships in Basic Biomedical Science. This fellowship will support Anthony's study to establish a novel, affordable technique to monitor the effectiveness of pneumococcal vaccines in Africa. The method will combine surveys of nasopharyngeal carriage in healthy people and mathematical modeling to determine whether a vaccine interrupts transmission of pneumococci and the rates of disease aversion. Please read more about Anthony's proposed study at the funders' website.
