Dr. Laura Kate Mackay – 2018 Michelson Prize Winner for Human Immunology and Vaccine Research.
As laboratory head and senior lecturer at The Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity, Dr. Laura Kate Mackay is studying a recently described subset of immune cells called tissue resident memory T cells, which combat various viral infections and cancer.
The research that will be funded by the Prize will examine immune responses by tissue resident memory T cells to harness their protective functions to improve vaccines and immunotherapies.
