Dr Claas Kirchhelle

Oxford Martin Fellow

I am a Lecturer of the History of Medicine at University College Dublin and a Fellow of the Oxford Martin School and the Oxford Vaccine Group.

My research fuses approaches from history and the biomedical sciences to study infectious disease, pharmaceutical research, and international health. I have authored multi-award-winning books on the history of antimicrobials in food production and animal welfare and curated critically acclaimed exhibitions on the past and present of penicillin and typhoid.”
