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

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.
