Professor Paul Gorry is committed to improving the lives of people living with HIV, the causative agent of AIDS.
Paul investigates the earliest steps in the HIV life cycle, such as the mechanisms by which HIV enters cells and how this may change in infected individuals over time. This is critically important for understanding the virus’ progression and the development of new antiviral drugs.
Paul and his team recently received nearly $878,000 from the Government to continue this life-saving research.
A world-renowned expert in his field, Paul is an Adjunct Professor in Medicine (Infectious Diseases) at Monash University, an Honorary Professorial Fellow in Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Melbourne and an Australian Council Future Fellow. In addition, he serves on the editorial board of Virology and Current HIV Research and is associate editor of Retrovirology.
Paul is the Deputy Dean, Research and Innovation in the School of Health and Medical Sciences where he leads the School’s research agenda.
