David A. Smith

Postdoctoral Bioinformatician

I am working as a post-doctoral bioinformatician focusing on host-pathogen genomics. My current work focuses on how  -omic variation in host and pathogen modulate the response to infection in the context of sepsis. 

I received my undergraduate degree in Biomedical Sciences from the University of Portsmouth in 2011, I then worked for the NHS working in Clinical Research Governance. In 2014 I started began working on the NIHR Health Informatics Collaborative in Oxford which is a multi centre project with the aim of integrating clinical data from electronic patient records and using this for clinical research into viral hepatitis. I completed my DPhil in Professor Ellie Barnes’s group at the University of Oxford in 2020. My DPhil work was focused on the characterisation of Hepatitis C Virus anti-viral resistance.
