Dr Norah Palmateer

Senior Research Fellow
I received a BScH in Life Sciences from Queen’s University (Canada), followed by an MSc in Epidemiology from the University of Edinburgh in 2004. During 2008-2014, I completed a part-time PhD in Public Health at the University of Glasgow, for which I was awarded the Joseph Black Medal and Alan Hird prize. I joined Glasgow Caledonian University as a Senior Research Fellow in January 2016.

Previously, I worked as an Epidemiologist with Health Protection Scotland in Glasgow since 2006, working principally on the epidemiology of hepatitis C, and the evaluation of interventions to prevent its transmission, among people who inject drugs. My principal research interests relate to the epidemiology and prevention of blood-borne viruses and other infections related to injecting drug use and I have published extensively on these topics in the academic literature.
