Project Description

Dr. Sofia Bartlett is a postdoctoral research fellow in the clinical prevention services division at the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control and Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of British Columbia. She obtained her Doctorate degree (PhD) in Molecular Epidemiology at the Kirby Institute, University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. Her research focusses on improving the health of marginalised populations, such as people who inject drugs, people in prison, and people living with hepatitis C infection. Sofia’s research utilizes a multidisciplinary approach, combining molecular genetics, bioinformatics and clinical epidemiology, and she is currently working on applying syndemic theory to understand factors related to gaps in the care cascade for hepatitis C infection in British Columbia.
