Dr Laura Nabarro

Dr Laura Nabarro trained at Imperial College, London before completing infectious disease and medical microbiology training at University College London Hospitals (UCLH) and St George’s Hospital. Following the Diploma of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (DTM&H), she became fascinated by parasites and undertook additional training in laboratory and clinical parasitology and tropical medicine at The Hospital for Tropical Diseases London, Public Health England and Christian Medical College, Vellore, India. Laura developed research interests in cystic echinococcosis and giardiasis with local and international collaborations.

As Clinical Parasitologist at the Hospital for Tropical Diseases, UCLH, Laura leads the diagnostic parasitology service and manages patients with a broad range of parasitic infections including echinococcosis (hydatid disease), cysticercosis and malaria. She leads the echinococcus and neuroparasitology multidisciplinary teams which receive referrals from all over the UK. Laura believes that the laboratory is an essential and often under-recognised part of patient outcome and experience and is passionate about ensuring that patients in the UK have access to the best available diagnostics for parasitic infections.
