Andrew Taylor-Robinson received a B.S. degree in microbiology from the University College London, London, UK, and a Ph.D. degree in parasite immunology from the University of Glasgow, Glasgow, Lanarkshire, UK, for work on immunity to malaria. He has completed the postdoctoral research at the University of Edinburgh, University of Glasgow, and Max Planck Institute for Immunobiology, Freiburg, Germany, on human and rodent malarias, and he further developed interest in regulation of immunity to infection. He was appointed at the University of Leeds as a Wellcome Trust Career Development Research Fellow, then as as a Lecturer in immunology. He is now an Associate Professor of immunology and haematology at Central Queensland University. His research interests include regulatory and effector mechanisms of protective immunity and immunopathology to malaria and other parasites in experimental models and humans and potentiation of protective immunity through vaccination strategies against infectious diseases.
