Tobias Strunk

The University of Western Australia

Dr Strunk is active in several related fields in neonatal immunology/infection and the effects of early-life exposure to inflammation. These projects will (i) further our understanding of the long-term implications of preterm birth on infectious diseases susceptibility and neurodevelopment; (ii) define previously under-recognised at-risk populations, characterise maturation of the immune system of preterm infants beyond the neonatal period and; (iii) explore new modalities of treatment and interventions to prevent invasive infection.
