Supervision Statement

  • Professor Rogerson's research interests fall into three main areas: understanding the effects of malaria infection in pregnant women on the mother and her unborn baby; identifying correlates of protective immunity against malaria infection in pregnant women and young children; and understanding how the host innate immune response controls the balance between protective immunity and excessive immune responses that lead to immune pathology and poor disease outcomes.
    He combines a strong network of international collaborations, including in malaria endemic areas in Africa and the Asia-Pacific, with a high-level research laboratory in Melbourne. In early 2014 Prof Rogerson will be relocating to the University of Melbourne's new Doherty Institute. His laboratory is currently open to accept suitable PhD candidates.
