Snake bite eco-epidemiology

This project is investigating snake bite ecology and epidemiology to provide ecological insights into understanding the spatial distribution of snake bite in South Asia, a snakebite hotspot. The research will study the prevalence and drivers of snake bite, and explore how changes in climate and land use patterns may affect the likelihood of snake bite occurring.

The research team brings together clinical experts on snake bite, epidemiologists and ecologists, taking a multidisciplinary approach to tackling the problem.
