Research Activities

I lead the CSIRO Dangerous Pathogens Team which performs research, development and preclinical evaluation of medical countermeasures for dangerous pathogens affecting humans and animals (zoonoses), especially those requiring high containment at biosafety level 3 or 4. I am interested in vector borne diseases of importance to Australia.

Techniques/Expertise

health economics; preclinical trials; vector-borne diseases; public health

Disease Models

We have a range of small to large animal models except hamsters and NHPs, and specialise in bacterial and viral diseases that require physical containment 3 or 4 (PC3 or PC4), with a few exceptions like Buruli Ulcer and Zika that require PC2. I am also interested in validating human ex vivo models.

Genetically Modified Organisms

mosquitoes; small laboratory animals
