Associate Professor Aude Fahrer

Division of Biomedical Science and Biochemistry

I am a research and teaching academic with over 20 years of experience at the ANU. My expertise is in immunology, cancer, virology and genomics. 

Research: My current research is on our low side-effect, inexpensive cancer immunotherapy, which has reached phase I clinical trial at the Canberra hospital. 

Service: I have also been highly involved in the ANU COVID response, including in ACT COVID wastewater surveillance.

Teaching: Located in RSB in the College of Science, I convene third year Infection and Immunity, a rigorous, and practical-intensive biology course.  I also teach into first year biology, third year immunology, and into the postgraduate medical school. 

Research training: I have been fortunate to train many outstanding ANU undergraduate, Ph.B., Honours, and Ph.D. students in my laboratory.

I am passionate about maintaining and improving the world-class teaching and research at the ANU.  I aim to ameliorate institutional processes, some of which, in my experience can significantly impede our academic productivity.  As a mother of three, who has worked part time for many years, I am acutely aware of increasingly burdensome administrative loads, and the importance of equity amongst staff.  It would be an honour to represent my fellow academic staff on ANU Council.
