Dr. Patricia Therese Illing – 2018 Michelson Prize Winner for Human Immunology and Vaccine Research.
A research fellow at Monash University, Dr. Patricia Therese Illing was the first to identify spliced peptides during a viral infection.
This work involves an innovative new approach for identifying influenza specific peptide antigens with implications for the development of vaccines against both seasonal and pandemic influenza strains.
The Prize money will provide greater resources to expand understanding of how a viral antigen is recognized by the human immune system.
