John is a molecular and cellular immunologist with fundamental interests understanding the processes that control immunological tolerance and immunity in different animals, from the teleost fishes through to humans. He has a particular interest in innate immune recognition of endogenous and exogenous danger signals and how this integrates into normal and pathophysiological processes. He heads the Experimental Therapeutics Laboratory (Sansom Institute) and he directly supports 10 staff and 6 PhD students. He also holds a tenured (A/Prof) research and teaching appointment in the School of Pharmacy and Medical Sciences (UniSA), and maintains the role of Honours program director, and BMedSci course coordinator.
John has a strong track record of project grant funding awarded from a variety of sources including NHMRC and ARC and other national, state and institutional schemes. He has also a long history of highly successful industry engagement, including biotechnology consultancies, commercial research funding and funding from industry-leveraged federal government schemes including ARC Linkage and the Researches-in-Business (Enterprise Connect) schemes. Most recently, he has received over $4mil in research funding from emerging biotechnology company Sementis Ltd to develop from first principles a new viral vaccine vector platform for applications in infectious disease control, allergy and cancer immunotherapy. He has authored over 80 peer-reviewed publications, has been cited almost 2000 times and has a h-index of 24.
