JCSMR Director’s ‘Health through Discovery’ Public Lecture Series: Investigation of primary immunodeficiencies in mice and men

Dr Anselm Enders, Department of Immunology and Infectious Disease, The John Curtin School of Medical Research, ANU.

Throughout my career my research has focused on understanding the pathogenesis of human primary immunodeficiencies. Most of these diseases are caused by a genetic defect in the development or function of white blood cells that are crucial for the protection against severe and recurrent infections. In this talk I will show how the investigation of patients with rare diseases can teach us some fundamental insights into the underlying disease biology. I will also present data on how we can translate the findings from mouse models to understand the pathogenesis of human diseases.

Dr Anselm Enders has been awarded the 2015 John James Foundation Tony Ayers Prize. This prize has been established by the John James Foundation for Excellence in Research in Translational Medicine at the ANU College of Medicine, Biology and Environment in honour of their long term Board member Mr Tony Ayers AC. The Chair of the John James Foundation will present the Prize to Dr Enders prior to the Lecture.

This lecture is free and open to the public. Registration is required as the number of seats is strictly limited.
