To curate Respiratory Syncytial Virus datasets and explore associations between early life infection and later respiratory illness.

RSV is associated with more than three million hospitalisations a year across the world, but a number of preventive interventions will soon be available.
For optimal clinical management and to guide policy decisions around vaccines and therapeutics, it is important to map the epidemiology, healthcare utilisation and outcomes for RSV in near real time.

This PhD project will curate RSV datasets at different severity levels in Scotland using the standard definitions, and to link RSV datasets to asthma datasets to explore the association between RSV infection in early life and subsequent respiratory sequelae in older children.
It is funded as part of the HDR UK Inflammation and Immunity Driver Programme, which seeks to transform the UK’s capabilities to improve understanding of mechanisms and health outcomes, using respiratory and allergic disorders as exemplar domains.
