Imperial College Health Care NHS Trust, London, UK.
Dr. Lyall is a consultant in paediatric infectious diseases at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust and Professor of Practice at Imperial College. I am very interested in congenital infections and their prevention, particularly HIV and CMV. I run both HIV and Congenital infection clinics at St Mary’s Hospital in London, and I am ward-attending consultant for Paediatric Infectious Diseases 4 months per year. I am a member of PENTA-ID and participate in HIV treatment trials for children. I have been actively involved in development of international courses for education for Paediatric Infections for many years, working with PENTA and the European Society for paediatric Infectious Diseases (ESPID). From 2018 to 2021, I was a member of the board of ESPID, and at the 2018 ESPID meeting, I received the “Bill Marshall” award, my chosen lecture topic was “Lessons from HIV- Can we eradicate congenital Cytomegalovirus infection?” This topic remains very close to my heart. I see myself as a front line clinician who can bring people together – children, families and peer supporters ,clinicians, laboratory scientists, epidemiologists, virologists, pharmacologists, and trialists,– all the team that we will need to change the future for children with congenital infections.
