Dr Anna McNaughton


Brief Biography:

I have recently completed my PhD at the University of Glasgow working on mixed genotype HCV infections. Prior to undertaking my PhD I worked for the Health Protection Agency and the National Blood Service.

Research interests:

My research interests include the development of viral sequencing methods, blood-borne viral infections, pathogen transmission, and viral diversity and evolution.

Current project:

Currently, I am developing a pipeline for the sequencing of full-length hepatitis B virus genomes.
