Profile of Prof Joanne Webster

Joanne is Professor of Parasitic Diseases at the Royal Veterinary College, London. She also retains an honorary Chair at Imperial College, is Associate Director for the London Centre for Neglected Tropical Disease Research (LCNTDR) and Director of the Centre for Emerging, Endemic and Exotic Diseases (CEEED). She is a WHO Expert Advisor on the Drug Efficacy and Disease Elimination Working Groups, and is on the Executive/Management Boards of the Schistosomiasis Control Initiative (SCI) and London International Development Centre (LIDC).

Her main areas of research focus on the evolution, epidemiology, behaviour and control of helminth and protozoan parasites of humans and animals. As co-Director of SCI from its inauguration, Joanne was responsible for the design, implementation and evaluation of large-scale sustainable Neglected Tropical Disease (NTD) control programmes across sub-Saharan Africa. She also works throughout the developing and developed world elucidating the role of domestic animals and wildlife in maintaining zoonotic transmission, together with the impact of parasites on host behaviour and its association with chronic disease.
