Yinzong Xiao is a PhD student of University of Melbourne who joined Burnet Institute in 2017 to complete her PhD.
She completed her MBBS and Master of Internal Medicine (specialising in Infectious Diseases) in China. During her post-graduate study she studied molecular biological science in the department of Infectious Diseases, with a focus on blood-borne virus research.
She has a specific interest in public health problems concerning hepatitis B at both a regional and global level. Her PhD research is primarily concerned with improving hepatitis B screening among high-risk populations, and retention in care among people living with chronic hepatitis B through community and clinic-based interventions in Australia.
