Next, she worked for nearly 10 years at the MRC Laboratories in The Gambia, first on the epidemiology of non-communicable diseases in sub-Sahara Africa (also the topic of her PhD), and later on the epidemiology of infectious diseases. She has been PI on a range of infectious disease research grants (eg on hepatitis B, hiv, mumps, influenza, hpv) and is currently active in several national and international infectious diseases organisations.
