Amy Chung's Profile Picture

Amy Chung

 

Dr Amy Chung is an NHMRC Career Development and Dame Kate Campbell Fellow. She completed her PhD at the University of Melbourne in 2011 and was awarded an American Australian Association Fellowship, NHMRC CJ Martin and MGH Medical Discovery Fellowship to conduct her postdoctoral training at the Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT and Harvard.

She returned to the University of Melbourne in 2015, where she was awarded an amfAR Mathilde Krim Fellowship that supported the establishment of her own laboratory in 2019. Dr Chung's lab aims to continually apply cutting-edge technologies to identify protective antibody responses against infectious diseases. Beyond neutralization, antibodies can mediate an array of functions, by instructing the innate immune system with their Fc region on how to attack pathogens. Dr Chung's work has helped identify key “humoral fingerprints” associated with protection against HIV and Mycobacterium Tuberculosis and is now being applied to other infectious diseases including Malaria and Influenza. This research can be used to design future antibody-based vaccines and can contribute to the generation of improved monoclonal antibody therapeutics.
