Personal profile

Biography

Dr Kylie Quinn undertook her PhD on Tuberculosis vaccines with Dr Joanna Kirman at the Malaghan Institute, NZ. In 2008, she joined the lab of Dr Robert Seder at the Vaccine Research Center, NIH, USA, where she screened potential vaccines for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and defined several mechanisms through which vaccines establish protection. In 2013, she joined the lab of Prof Nicole La Gruta, first at the University of Melbourne and now at Monash University, where she focuses on strategies to improve immune responses and vaccination in the elderly. 

Research interests
