Kirk Tickell

MBBS, MPH, Senior Fellow
Childhood Acute Illness and Nutrition (CHAIN) Network

After graduating from with his MPH from the University of Washington (UW), Kirk became a senior research fellow in the UW Center of Global Women, Adolescent and Child Health.  He is currently the network coordinator for the Childhood Acute Illness and Nutrition (CHAIN) Network, which aims to understand why malnourished children with acute illnesses are at such high risk of death, and then to design inventions to reduce this risk. His research interests are focused on the effect of enteric function on recovery from acute illness and malnutrition, and more generally the intersection between pediatric infectious disease and malnutrition.
