Jennifer Ilo Van Nuil, PhD, is a Global Health Bioethics Network Research Fellow at Oxford University Clinical Research Unit (OUCRU) in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Jennifer’s expertise is in Medical Anthropology and she is broadly concerned with the relationships between global health interventions, politics, and practice. Her main research interests include the ethnography of biomedicine, infectious diseases, global health, and social theory. Jennifer has worked on research in Rwanda for over ten years and has been working in Vietnam for the past year.

Current research includes exploring the socio-cultural context of access to medications for viral hepatitis through post-marketing clinical trials in southern Vietnam, community attitudes and practices regarding antibiotics in northern Vietnam, and research on the ethical challenges in conducting clinical trials and studies in low and middle income countries.

Prior to joining OUCRU, Jennifer worked with multiple non-governmental organizations (both national and international) in Rwanda. Past work includes ethnographic research with members of HIV support associations in Rwanda, acceptability research within clinical trials regarding women’s health interventions in Kigali, Rwanda, and qualitative research regarding care and treatment seeking pathways for people with hepatitis C in Rwanda.
