Research Overview

Katherine's team researches the immunity to viral infections, especially the newly emerged influenza viruses. Her work spans basic research from mouse experiments to human immunity, through to clinical settings, with a particular focus on understanding universal CD8+ T cell immunity to influenza viruses. Her studies aim to identify key correlates of severe and fatal influenza disease in high-risk groups, including children, the elderly and Indigenous Australians.
