Welcome to the Department of Microbiology and Immunology. Meet our team and learn more about unseen world of microbes and immunity.
Associate Professor Bruce Russell is a co-author of a paper recently published in the Journal Science that identifies a critical pathway for Vivax malaria infection, providing insight that may be useful for future vaccine development.
Max Wilkinson, an accomplished former BSc(Hons) student of the department, returned recently to present his PhD research from the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology at Cambridge University.
A recent study from the Fineran Lab has shown that bacterial immune systems can increase the transduction of bacterial genetic material, such as the genes associated with antibiotic resistance. The findings have been published in the latest issue of mBio, a premier journal of the American Society for Microbiology.
Congratulations to the three staff members to receive academic promotions effective from the beginning of the 2018 academic year.
