Research in the theme of Infection and Immunity at SCMB encompasses the study of microbial pathogens and the response to infection by their hosts.
Specific areas of interest include molecular virology, bacterial pathogenesis, fungal pathogenesis, parasitology and innate immunity.
Members of the theme also represent a core group within the Australian Infectious Diseases Research Centre, a multidisciplinary network encompassing more than 80 research groups at The University of Queensland and the Queensland Institute of Medical Research.
