Angela McLean

Professor of Mathematical Biology, Fellow of All Souls College & Co-Director of the Institute for Emerging Infections

Angela McLean’s research interests lie in the use of mathematical models to aid the understanding of the evolution and spread of infectious agents, with a current focus on Hepatitis C (HCV), HIV and influenza.

She has also carried out research into prions, which are responsible for the transmission of scrapie and vCJD, with implications for managing the public health risk of these diseases.

Angela McLean is currently chairing the Lead Expert Group for a Policy Futures Project on Improving Future Disaster Anticipation and Resilience for HM Government’s Foresight Programme.

Angela is Co-Director of the Institute for Emerging Infections, a member of the Oxford Martin School.
