Professor Ross Barnard’s research includes infectious disease diagnostics, and developing new technologies for detecting infections.

These range from assays to developing a new real-time PCR technology.

Professor Barnard also studies antibody engineering for diagnostic and treatment applications, particularly using antibody fragments to identify and target antigens, substances that cause the immune system to produce antibodies against it.
