Join our online ASP Seminar Series with Roland Ruscher from James Cook University, speaking about “High throughput screening of hookworm secreted proteins reveals novel anti-inflammatory biologics” and Muhammad Noman Naseem from University of Queensland speaking about “Buffalo fly lesions; are Stephanofilaria to blame?” with co-chairs Sarah Preston (Federation University) and Ali Raza (University of Queensland). Our seminar will take place online via Zoom on Friday 27th August 2021 at 1pm AEST.

Dr. Ruscher obtained a German Diploma (~MSc) from the University of Cologne and the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Germany, and a PhD in 2014 in the field of immunology from the University of Queensland, Translational Research Institute in Australia. He then joined the University of Minnesota (UMN) Center for Immunology in the USA as a Postdoctoral Fellow, and returned to Australia in 2018, where he currently holds a Research Fellow position in Prof. Alex Loukas’ group at James Cook University. Dr. Ruscher’s research interests encompass mucosal and T cell immunology. An exciting arm of his research investigates how molecules secreted by intestinal parasites modulate immune responses in their mammalian hosts, and how they could be used to combat inflammatory diseases. Noman is a last-year PhD student at Centre for Animal Science QAAFI, The University of Queensland. He graduated with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) and have a Master’s (M.Phil.) in Veterinary Pathology. He has five years of experience in teaching and veterinary pathology services.” In his PhD, he is investigating the pathogenesis of buffalo fly lesions in Australian cattle.
