James Wood is a veterinary epidemiologist who leads the Disease Dynamics Unit in Cambridge and conducts multidisciplinary research on infectious diseases and his research interests are focussed on infectious disease emergence and its control.
Ensuring that research impacts on policy is a particular interest. He has worked on potentially zoonotic viruses in African bats for much of the last 15 years since he came to Cambridge and has widely published on risks of disease from wildlife.
He is one of the champions of the Cambridge Africa programme which works to promote equitable relationships in research between academics based in Cambridge and those in sub-Saharan Africa.
