Anna Seale is a Wellcome Trust Career Development Fellow at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. She trained in paediatrics, and subsequently epidemiology and public health, with a focus on infectious diseases in maternal, child and newborn health. She has a particular interest in perinatal infection, and her Wellcome Trust Research Training Fellowship based at the KEMRI-Wellcome Trust Research Programme, concerned the clinical and molecular epidemiology of Group B Streptococcus in coastal Kenya and its association with stillbirth and neonatal disease. She is now pursing her interests working on the aetiology of maternal infection and their association with stillbirth in Ethiopia (Haramaya University) and Kenya (KEMRI-Wellcome Trust Research Programme). The work in Ethiopia is based at a new Child Health and Mortality Prevention Surveillance site in Harar (www.champshealth.org). This is being developed as a collaboration between LSHTM, Haramaya University,and Emory Global Health Institute.
