Dr. Karupiah is currently NH and MRC Senior Research Fellow and Leader of the Infection and Immunity Group in the Division of Immunology and Genetics at the John Curtin School of Medical Research, Australian National University, in Canberra, where he also received his PhD in viral immunology. He did postdoctoral research from 1990 to 1994 in the United States at the National Institutes of Health, National Institute on Allergy and Infectious Diseases, first in the Laboratory of Viral Diseases, and later in the Laboratory of Immunopathology. He has received two Fogarty Fellowships and, in 1999, the Medical Foundation Fellowship from the University of Sydney. His research interests are in the broad area of virus-host interactions, and he pursues this goal using a range of viral and animal models. An integral component of his research is the attempt to understand the roles of leukocyte subsets, cytokines, chemokines, and some signaling molecules in viral infection and disease.
