AID researchers are drawn from infectious disease experts from across QIMR and UQ who apply leading technologies to identify, understand and prevent infectious disease.

Dr Lynette Beattie

Dr Lynette Beattie’s research interests lie in the field of liver macrophage biology and host-pathogen interactions.

Lynette’s research focuses on a population of liver resident macrophages called Kupffer cells, with the aim of understanding how these cells respond to infectious and inflammatory stimuli to shape the host immune response.

She is also interested in understanding how and why Kupffer cells are different to other tissue resident macrophages in the body.

Lynette’s work uses a variety of immunological techniques including 2-photon intravital imaging to visualise the cellular response to infection in real-time. Lynette is a senior research officer in the Immunology and Infection lab at QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute.
