 Professor  ANU College of Medicine, Biology and Environment

 He graduated from the University of Tasmania in 1971 and have worked largely in academic medical centres for most of my career. After an internship at the Royal Hobart Hospital I moved to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital adjacent to the University of Sydney and commenced training in internal medicine. He completed this in Immunology and Immunopathology in 1979 with Fellowships from both the RACP and RCPA. From 1976-1979 I worked in the laboratory of  Anthony Basten at the University of Sydney and obtained a PhD. His thesis title: “Immunology and Immunotherapy of Murine Sarcomas”. He never worked with mice again. His post-doctoral years were at Stanford University in the laboratory of Edgar Engleman where He worked on human immunoregulation. He was supported by the NHMRC applied health science fellowship. He returned to a faculty position at RPAH and the University of Sydney and worked on the immunogenetics and immunopathology of systemic autoimmune diseases such as SLE, scleroderma and rheumatoid arthritis. Much of this work was done in collaboration with Sue Serjeantson from the JCSMR. He also worked in AIDS as He was responsible for the development of an HIV service at RPAH. During these years, the 1980s and early 1990s He combined clinical service, teaching and research. In 1988 He spent a sabbatical in Cambridge, England in the laboratory of Peter Lachmann. In 1994 He came to Canberra for the University of Sydney as foundation Associate Dean of the Canberra Clinical School. In 2002 he was appointed foundation Dean of the ANU Medical School, a position he held until 2008. From the point of view of research these were pretty empty years, although in 2007 he had another sabbatical in Cambridge working with David Jayne and Ken Smith, particularly on ANCA associated vasculitis. From 2008 until 2012 he was Director of Research in ACT Health, responsible for research governance within ACT Health. He is an active physician, He teaches and his research interests are being rekindled. Since 2013 he have been an Emeritus Professor at ANU.
