Dr. Daniel Fernández Ruiz
Position: Senior Research Officer
Department: Microbiology and Immunology
University/Institute/Company: University of Melbourne/Peter Doherty Institute
I received a Bachelor in Biology and Biochemistry by the University of Oviedo, Spain, and obtained my PhD from the University of Bonn, Germany, in 2008. I then took up a postdoctoral position on malaria immunology at the University of Melbourne, where I am currently based. My research explores malaria immunity, particularly focusing on T cell activation, T cell memory and vaccination. My current focus is the study of liver-resident memory T cells in malaria, their potential for protection and their generation through novel vaccination strategies.
