Dr. Patricia Illing of Monash University (Australia) is a 2018 winning recipient of the “Michelson Prizes for Human Immunology and Vaccine Research.”
Through her research, Dr. Illing is trying to understand how our cells indicate infection to our immune system. This could allow for the development of better vaccinations in the future.
The Michelson Prizes for Human Immunology and Vaccine Research provide resources to expand research and understanding of how a viral antigen is recognized by the human immune system so that we may improve the future outcome of vaccines and immunotherapies. [2018-06-27. HVP/MMRF]
