Arjun Chandna


Research Physician

  • Post-doctoral clinical researcher
  • Specialist Registrar in Infectious Diseases & Medical Microbiology


Arjun is a clinical researcher in the Cambodia Oxford Medical Research Unit (COMRU). He has worked for the MORU Tropical Health Network since 2018 and completed his DPhil, supported by a Wellcome Trust Doctoral Training Fellowship, between 2019-2023. He is interested in developing capacity for clinical infection services in settings where it is needed but lacking.

His research focuses on the syndromic management of febrile illness, and specifically around the early recognition of children at risk of progression to sepsis. The overarching ambition is to develop and evaluate pragmatic, context-appropriate, prognostic tools that can help healthcare providers better identify children whom may benefit from facility-based care and those whom can safely be treated in the community. Work is conducted in collaboration with Angkor Hospital for Children, Médecins Sans Frontières and the Department of Primary Care Health Sciences at the University of Oxford.

Arjun is a member of the team leading the South and Southeast Asian Community-based Trials Network (SEACTN) project, part of the Wellcome Trust’s ‘Innovation in LMICs’ Flagship.
