Dr Michael Gantier

Dr Gantier is an ARC Future Fellow working in the Centre for Innate Immunity and Infectious Diseases at the Hudson Institute in Melbourne. Following on his PhD studies on RNA interference in Dublin (Ireland), he joined the laboratory of Prof Bryan Williams in 2006, to define the interaction of siRNAs and microRNAs with the innate immune system.
He established his independent laboratory in 2015 at the Hudson Institute of Medical Research, investigating how nucleic acids control the interface between host and pathogens, and how this can lead to inflammatory diseases. His work has been published in many prestigious journals including Nature Immunology, Cell Host and Microbe, Nucleic Acids Research, and the Journal of Immunology, among others.
