Stephen Kent 1

The University of Melbourne, VIC

Professor Kent trained as an infectious diseases physician, immunologist and HIV vaccine scientist in Melbourne and the USA. As a physician-scientist he is national leader in developing and testing HIV vaccines and is internationally recognised in this important field. He developed and manages a biologically secure facility to test promising HIV vaccines, one of very few in the Southern hemisphere. Vaccine concepts tested in recent years have shown sufficient promise to progress into human clinical trials.
