Professor Chris Engwerda
Christian Engwerda studies the behaviour of T cells during parasitic infections. His group aims to understand how T cell responses are regulated during infection and to use this knowledge for clinical advantage. Chris established his laboratory at QIMR Berghofer in 2003 as a NHMRC career Development Fellow, after spending 8 years at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. He is a NHMRC Senior Research Fellow and works with experimental models of malaria and leishmaniasis. In recent years, his group’s research has increasingly focused on studying samples from volunteers deliberately infected with parasites, as well as from malaria and leishmaniasis patients.
