I am studying children with malnutrition, their immune system, and their gut health in Zimbabwe.


Dr Jonathan Sturgeon MA, DTM&H, MRCPCH

Thank you for visiting my website. I am a paediatrician doctor and Wellcome Trust clinical PhD fellow looking at malnutrition and its effect on the gut and the immune system in children. I am doing clinical research studies as sub-studies of the HOPE-SAM and TAME trials. I am based at Queen Mary, University of London (QMUL), and I am working at Zvitambo Institute of Maternal and Child Health Research in Harare, Zimbabwe. I am interested in the body's response to infection, how it is affected by the gut and by malnutrition. I am aiming to  subspecialise in paediatric infectious diseases.       


Please take a look at some of the clinical research I am doing looking into malnutrition and its effect on the gut and the immune system. This website has information on me, my research, my publications, as well as some of the institutions and people I work with.
