Title: T cell receptor recognition of non peptide-based antigens.
Prof. Rossjohn, NHMRC Australia Fellow at Monash University, is recognised for his contributions to the understanding the function and dysfunction of the immune system. He has used structural biology to explain T-cell development, and how the T-cell receptor combats viruses, causes autoimmunity, drug and food hypersensitivities. He has pioneered our understanding of lipid-based immunity by T-cells and recently showed how vitamin B metabolites represent an entirely new target for T-cells.
