About AID

Established in 2011, the Australian Infectious Diseases Research Centre is a multidisciplinary network based at The University of Queensland, and the QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute.

Dr Michelle Wykes (ARC Future Fellow)

Dr Michelle Wykes studies the mechanisms by which Plasmodium spp, which cause malaria, are able to evade immunity, with a view to developing novel therapeutics.

Her recent research has focussed on the Programmed cell death pathway (PD-1) and how the ligands PD-L1 and PD-L2 mediate chronic and severe disease as well as initiating immunity.
