    Collapse Overview
    I am a resident physician (internal medicine), public health scientist, and infectious diseases epidemiologist. My work draws upon diverse quantitative methodologies to inform policy in tropical medicine and global infectious diseases. The overarching goal of my research is to understand transmission of infectious diseases of poverty to design more effective public health policies to control and eliminate them locally and globally.

    Email: Nathan.Lo@ucsf.edu

    My research draws upon methods from the fields of epidemiology, engineering, and statistics with international collaborators to evaluate public health programs. A large emphasis of my work is translating scientific evidence into public health policy. I continue to work with the World Health Organization in multiple capacities, including as the lead writer for upcoming guidelines on public health control and elimination of schistosomiasis. My work has been supported by grants from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and World Health Organization.

    My current research focuses on the following areas:
    (1) Public health strategies for helminths infections
    (2) Typhoid fever and vaccination
    (3) Vaccine-preventable infectious diseases in the United States

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
