The impact of host and virus genetic variation on HCV infection outcome.

Azim Ansari is a statistical geneticist based at the Nuffield Department of Medicine at Oxford University. His group studies the variations in infection outcomes by jointly analysing host and pathogen genomic data. They use paired host-pathogen genomic data from the same individuals to identify the molecular interplay between host and pathogen and their combined impact on disease outcomes. He currently holds a Wellcome Trust Sir Henry Dale Fellowship and was awarded a Medical Research Foundation Emerging Leaders Prize in November 2023.
