Ross first discovered a passion for global health whilst studying for his BSc (Hons) in Biomedical Sciences at The University of Edinburgh. A key area of interest was the translation of laboratory-based research to applications in the field, with particular emphasis on Neglected Tropical Diseases. This inspired him to take the next step and pursue post-graduate study with an international outlook. Now undertaking his PhD, Ross’s research focusses on Sleeping Sickness in Uganda, specifically the roles humans and cattle play as important reservoirs of infection.
Ross is delighted to be joining the GHGP Team to assist with the organisation of The Healthy and Sustainable Futures Exhibition.
