Research Interests

Dr Pippa Scott's field of research is infectious diseases with a focus on vaccine preventable diseases and bacterial pathogens.

She has previously been involved in randomised controlled trials, systematic reviews and mathematical modelling studies about topics including pneumococcal, Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) and measles vaccines.

Dr Scott is currently investigating the transmission of Staphylococcus aureus in the community in New Zealand.
