Dr Andrew J. Currie PhD BSc (Hons) is a Senior Research Fellow with the Schools of Paediatrics and Child Health and Medicine & Pharmacology at UWA. He was awarded his Ph.D. with distinction in 2001 from UWA and then commenced 3 years of productive post-doctoral training in an infectious diseases laboratory at the British Columbia Research Institute for Women and Children’s Health in Vancouver, after receiving a Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Fellowship. He returned to Australia in 2004 after being awarded a Healy Fellowship from the Raine Medical Research Foundation to work as an independent Research fellow within the Tumour Immunology Group, at the University of WA. He has been actively involved nationally and internationally in innate immunity research over the last 10 years, focusing particularly on the role of Toll-like receptors (TLR) in initiating and controlling inflammation.
