Associate Professor Gerard Hoyne

Gerard Hoyne joined Notre Dame in 2009 and was appointed the Associate Dean of Health Sciences. Gerard completed his BSc and PhD at The University of Western Australia and has worked extensively in academic research with stints at Universities in London and Edinburgh in the United Kingdom within the field of immunology. His research work has involved multidisciplinary teams to investigate how the immune system regulates immune responses to self and foreign proteins. This has important implications in the development of autoimmune diseases such as allergy and diabetes.
He has gained research grants both in Australia and overseas that amount to over $3 million dollars over the last 20 years. He has co-authored over 40 scientific manuscripts and has presented his work at national and international scientific conferences. He was a cofounding scientist of a biotechnology company that was established in Cambridge in the UK and is a named inventor on eight international patents that have been granted.
Gerard is a member of the Australian Society for Immunology and has served as a State Councillor between 2008 & 2009. He has also been a member of the British Society for Immunology.
