Deemed as one of the most unconventional branches of biological science, immunology has fascinated healthcare scientists for eons now. If you are wondering what this is all about, know that immunologists are clinical scientists who investigate the various functions of our immune system and use that knowledge to diagnose and deal with a wad of diseases and disorders. Immunologists delve deep into abnormal immune responses, often related to conditions like autoimmune diseases, immunodeficiency, allergies and transplant rejection. Simply put, immunologists are at the forefront of research and innovation. Rightly regarded as world leader in immunology, Australia had little means to medical research until 1936 when National Health and Medical Research Council was first set. That laid the cornerstone for many more medical inventions and innovations to follow, putting Australia ahead of the world in the field of clinical research. Melbourne is a leading center for immunology research in Australia, and the world. Immunologists in Melbourne are toiling hard to tackle medical challenges, including autoimmune disorders, malaria, and cancer. Let's explore the biographies to learn all about the timelines, life stories and interesting trivia & facts related to the lives of some such most famous immunologists Australia has given the world.
