Dr. Sofia Bartlett is an infectious disease epidemiologist whose research investigates the intersection of sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections (STBBIs), with incarceration, substance use, and digital exclusion. She received a BSc(Hons) from James Cook University and a PhD in Medicine from the University of New South Wales through the Kirby Institute for Infection and Immunity in 2017. She relocated to Canada to undertake a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of British Columbia (UBC) as a CIHR & MSFHR co-funded Health System Impact Fellow in 2018. Her postdoctoral work focussed on understanding drivers of inequity in the hepatitis C care cascade in British Columbia, and she now leads a program of implementation science research to evaluate interventions to address these and other inequities affecting STBBI care.

Currently, Dr. Bartlett is the Senior Scientist for STBBIs with Clinical Prevention Services at BCCDC, and an Adjunct Professor at UBC in the School of Population and Public Health. She is a Co-Investigator with the Canadian Network on Hepatitis C as well as the BC Hepatitis Testers Cohort. She is the lead of the Pathways to STBBI Care in Prisons and Test Link Call Projects, as well as Co-Primary Investigator of the ADVANCE COVID-19 Vaccines Study.
