Join us for the opportunity to listen to ARC Future Fellow and Head of the Inflammasome Laboratory at IMB Associate Professor Kate Schroder.

A/Prof Schroder and her team’s research focuses on understanding how immune cells launch healthy inflammation to fight infection, and unhealthy inflammation to promote disease. By understanding exactly how the body fights infection, we can help identify new drug targets or vaccines to combat infectious disease, which cause 13 million deaths globally each year. This research may also be able to design new strategies for the treatment of common diseases such as cancer, gout and diabetes.

Session Overview:

  • Presentation from A/Prof Schroder.
  • Tour of A/Prof Schroder’s laboratory.
  • Meet with A/Prof Schroder and her team over light morning tea.


About Meet the Researchers

Our Institute was built to inspire scientists, to cultivate interaction across a wide range of scientific disciplines, to generate adventurous innovative ideas, to foster revolutionary discoveries, and to translate our knowledge of nature to discover cures for a better world. Our researchers are the life force that makes this possible and drive incredible discoveries to save lives today and into the future.

Meet the Researchers series is your chance to connect in person and hear firsthand how they are advancing understanding in the life sciences, and learn what fuels their passion to close in gamechanger discoveries.
