Career Summary

Biography

I have worked within the University of Newcastle environment for 30 years. Initially I was employed on NHMRC research grants and was the Chief investigator on some of these. The focus of my research has been investigation of immune responses to infectious diseases at mucosal surfaces (lung, intestine, and reproductive tract), and development of effective mucosal vaccines. I am also a member of the VIVA group within the Hunter Medical Research Institute.

For the past 15 years I have been employed by small biotech companies that have had their R&D units embedded within the University of Newcastle. In my industry role I have successfully obtained government AUS-Industry R&D grants. Currently, as a Conjoint Associate Professor in School of Biomedical Sciences and Pharmacy, Faculty of Health, I lecture to Biomedical Sciences students, supervise post-graduate students, and collaborate on research projects within the Discipline of Immunology and Microbiology.

I also Chair the University of Newcastle Biosafety Committee and I am a Vice Chancellor nominated employer representative member of the University OH&S committee. I am employed by Newcastle Innovation to work as the Chief Scientific Officer for Hunter Immunology Ltd (an unlisted public company) and I am responsible for the operation of the Hunter Immunology Ltd R&D Unit which is located within the School of Biomedical Science and Pharmacy in the David Maddison Clinical Sciences Building. In this role I also interact with manufacturing and pre-clinical and clinical research contractors. The focus of Hunter Immunology Ltd is vaccine development.
