Personal profile

Biography

Michael holds a PhD in virology and has studied viruses and the innate immune response to virus infections in leading laboratories around the world, e.g. at the Universities of Freiburg and Heidelberg (Germany), the Pasteur Institute in Paris (France), the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla/San Diego (U.S.A), at the Australian National University and Australia's CSIRO. He is interested in interferon-induced proteins, animal models for viral diseases and the replication of RNA viruses (e.g. flavi- and caliciviruses). At the University of Canberra, he teaches immunology and microbiology and chairs the Committee for Ethics in Animal Experimentation. In his spare time, Michael conducts paleontological research.

Research Interests: 

  • Molecular virology and innate immunity
  • Hepatitis viruses (HBV, HCV and HDV; rabbit caliciviruses)
  • Vaccine development and gene delivery
  • Paleontology
