Personal profile

Biography

Dr Allison Imrie is a scientist with a background in virology and anti-viral immunity. Her early work with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) focussed on virus transmission between transmitter and recipient pairs, including transmission of antiviral drug resistant HIV species.  She also characterised immune responses in early HIV infection.  She was invited to work with the Global Program on AIDS in the World Health Organization Western Pacific Regional Office as a short term consultant to advise member states to develop short and medium term plans for AIDS prevention and control and to assist with establishing HIV testing and surveillance programs. This experience informed her subsequent work on mosquito-borne viral diseases of public health importance including dengue, and investigations of viral molecular epidemiology and immunopathogenesis. She has worked with colleagues in the Asia Pacific region to investigate neglected tropical diseases including dengue, Zika, Chikungunya and leptospirosis, and in Australia on endemic viruses including Ross River virus. She collaborates with colleagues in Australia and the US to identify novel mosquito-borne viruses. Most recently she has been funded to investigate immune responses in people diagnosed with coronavirus infection.
