Hayley Newton

 

Dr Hayley Newton completed her PhD at Monash University in 2007. During her PhD, Hayley was awarded the prestigious Victoria Fellowship and AFAS-FEAST Fellowship, allowing her to extend her studies on Legionella pneumophila to a global network of laboratories.

Subsequently, Hayley was awarded a NHMRC Training Fellowship to undertake postdoctoral research overseas. In 2009, she commenced the fellowship within the laboratory of Professor Craig Roy at Yale University. Here she worked extensively to develop an understanding of the pathogenesis of the intracellular bacterial pathogen Coxiella burnetii. During this period, Hayley developed pioneering techniques to genetically manipulate Coxiella and demonstrated that the Dot/Icm type IV secretion system is an essential virulence determinant. These findings have led to a significant shift in our understanding of this mysterious intracellular pathogen. Hayley moved to the Department of Microbiology and Immunology, University of Melbourne, at the Peter Doherty Institute in 2013. She has established a research program examining the virulence strategies of intracellular bacterial pathogens and using these pathogens as novel tools to decipher aspects of human cell biology. Hayley currently holds a teaching/research academic position within the Department and is the Co-Theme leader for Host-Pathogen Interactions for the Doherty Institute.
