Professor Philip Hugenholtz (ARC Australian Laureate Fellow)

Philip Hugenholtz

Professor Philip Hugenholtz’s research focuses on molecular characterisation of host-associated microbial communities, including those of healthy and diseased people.

There is a growing appreciation that pathogens do not work in isolation but are part of microbial communities, even in parts of the body traditionally considered to be microbe-free.

This area, dubbed “clinical ecology”, serves to complement and inform more traditional pathogen-oriented research.
