Sharon Hutchinson

Last name

Sharon is a Professor of Epidemiology and Population Health at Glasgow Caledonian University, and works in association with Health Protection Scotland to develop surveillance on blood-borne viruses. She manages a broad translational research programme, which is both methodological and applied and spans activities including infectious disease modelling, record-linkage studies and evaluation of public health interventions.

Her research provided the key evidence to guide a public health response to Scotland’s hepatitis C epidemic, which culminated in the Scottish Government investing significantly in improving services. She is currently supporting WHO on initiatives to tackle viral hepatitis in low and middle income countries.
