James Ian Campbell
Head of Research Microbiology, OUCRU Vietnam
James Campbell has worked in Microbiology and human diagnostic medicine for over thirty years. In 1999, before his current position at OUCRU, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, he spent fifteen years working in veterinary diagnostics, Scottish Agricultural College, Veterinary Division. This gave him an excellent background in both vet and clinical work.
James Campbell’s interest in zoonosis has been introduced to OUCRU. He and his Vietnamese colleague, Dr. Dung, were the first to identify and recognize the importance of Streptococcus suis as one of the main causes of bacterial meningitis in Vietnam in 2000. In 2018 he demonstrated the first 30 cases of Brucellosis in Vietnam and is now looking at its prevalence.
James has remained actively involved in the treatment of tetanus and its secondary problems. He continues to work on several research areas including enteric and CNS disease and fascioliasis, a rapidly increasing problem. He is also heavily involved in teaching in 18 provincial hospitals and 3 animal health units within Vietnam as well as teaching in Yangon in the Livestock, Breeding, Vet, Division lab and in the University of Medicine Yangon Infectious Diseases Unit.
James is a member of The Congregation at Oxford University and a Fellow of the Institute of Biomedical Science, United Kingdom, a member of the British Society for Parasitology and a member of the Global Outbreak and Alert Response Network, WHO. In 2012 he received the Ho Chi Minh City Medal for his service to medicine and science in Vietnam.
