My name is Alasdair Munro, and I am a senior clinical research fellow in paediatric infectious diseases in the UK.

I run clinical trials and study infections in children, including Covid-19. I am interested in child health and infectious diseases, epidemiology, and medical evidence more broadly.

I have spent most of my clinical time working in the children’s emergency department for the past 5 years, and have a passion for educating parents and healthcare providers about the fundamentals of child health.
