Andrew Taylor‐Robinson received a B.S. degree in microbiology from University College London, UK, and a Ph.D. degree in parasite immunology from the University of Glasgow, 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 and subsequently appointed to the permanent academic staff. He joined Central Queensland University, in 2012, and spent a secondment as a Professorial Research Fellow with the Commonwealth‐funded Health Collaborative Research Network. He is Professor of Immunology & Haematology and currently Deputy Dean (Research) at the School of Medical & Applied Sciences. His research interests include regulatory and effector mechanisms of protective immunity and immunopathology to malaria, dengue, and other vector‐borne pathogens in experimental models and humans and potentiation of protective immunity through vaccination strategies against infectious diseases. His work has now extended to bacterial infections of the upper respiratory tract, including otitis media.
