Christopher Dye FRS, FMedSci is Director of Health Information in the Office of HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases at the World Health Organization and, from 2006–2009, was also Gresham Professor of Physic in the City of London.
Chris Dye began professional life as an ecologist in the UK, having been awarded a first-class degree in biology from the University of York and a DPhil in zoology from the University of Oxford. After developing an interest in infectious diseases at Imperial College London, he moved to the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine to bring his research closer to public health. He was head of the School’s Vector Biology and Epidemiology Unit until 1996, carrying out research on leishmaniasis, malaria, rabies and other infectious and zoonotic diseases in Africa, Asia and South America.
In 1996, he joined the World Health Organization where he has developed methods for using national surveillance and survey data to study the large-scale dynamics and control of tuberculosis (TB) and other communicable diseases. Working with governments and other agencies he is continuously engaged in the process of translating science into health policy. From 2006–2009, he was Professor of Physic at Gresham College, 35th in a lineage of professors that have been giving public lectures in the City of London since 1597. He is a Visiting Professor of Zoology at the University of Oxford, a member of the Board of Reviewing Editors for Science, a Fellow of The Royal Society and of The Academy of Medical Sciences.
