Associate Professor Ashraful Haque
Ash completed his BA(Hons) in Natural Sciences in 1997 at Cambridge University, UK, followed by a PhD (2002) in microbial biochemistry with Prof. Gordon Dougan FRS at Imperial College, London. After a first post-doc at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, where he examined host immune responses to the gram-negative bacterium, Burkholderia pseudomallei, he moved to QIMR Berghofer in 2006 to study T cell responses during protozoan parasitic infection. He has previously received an Australian NHMRC Career Development Fellowship to examine host immune responses during Plasmodium infection. He is currently funded by the Australian NHMRC to pursue forays into modelling in-host pathogen growth dynamics, parasite genetics, and as will be discussed in this seminar, single-cell genomics.
