Dr Caroline Trotter is a Senior Lecturer in Epidemiology in the Department of Veterinary Medicine. Her research examines the potential and actual impact of immunisation using a range of methods from classic epidemiology to mathematical modelling and health economics. Her work has been used to inform national and (as a consultant to the World Health Organisation) international vaccine policy. While much of her research is focussed on meningococcal disease and carriage in the UK and Africa, she also has current projects on group B streptococcus, pneumococcus, norovirus and rabies.
Caroline's work on Meningitis vaccination has shaped WHO guidelines, see the CIPH impact case study
