About this Event

The Centre for Infectious Diseases and Microbiology - Public Health (CIDM-PH) Western Sydney Local Health District, and Marie Bashir Institute for Infectious Diseases and Biosecurity (MBI), University of Sydney, are pleased to present a seminar by A/Professor Fabienne Brilot-Turville, 'SARS-CoV-2 neutralizing antibodies; longevity, breadth, and evasion by emerging viral variants'.

A/Prof Fabienne Brilot obtained her PhD in Belgium and at the JD Gladstone Institutes, UCSF, USA. She did a postdoctoral fellowship under the mentorship of Professor Christian Munz (University of Zurich, Switzerland) at the Browne Center for Immunology and Immune Diseases headed by late Professor Ralph Steinman (Nobel Prize for Medicine 2011) at the Rockefeller University, USA. She was recruited at the Children’s Hospital at Westmead in Sydney in 2007 where she started the Brain Autoimmunity Group. Fabienne is Principal Research Fellow at the University of Sydney. Her group aims to discover biomarkers and explores the autoimmune response against the brain in patients to improve their diagnosis and treatment. Recently she has developed a collaborative program of research to study the breadth and longevity of the neutralization response after SARS-CoV2 natural infection and vaccination.

Free registration is available for both in person attendance and zoom link.
