Fungal pathogens have a major global impact upon human health – they are often difficult to diagnose and treat, and there is an urgent need for better diagnostics and more effective antifungal treatments.
Five Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute (BDI) researchers have been awarded $2.23 million under the 2023 ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) scheme.
The consortium entitled PROPHECY: Profiling immune RespOnse in Paediatric and High-risk populations to SARS-CoV-2 is led by a diverse executive team of both scientist and clinician researchers, Prof Menno Van Zelm (Immunology & Pathology, CCS), Dr Gabriela Khoury (Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute), Prof Heidi Drummer (Burnet Institute), A/Prof James McMahon (Infectious Diseases and Alfred Health) and A/Prof Benjamin Rogers (School of Clinical Sciences and Monash Health).
We’re all familiar with cinema’s portrayal of artificial intelligence (AI) – humans battling against human-like machines. But despite this commonplace portrayal, where technology mimics all aspects of human consciousness (sometimes even superseding human intellect), contemporary AI, and what can be feasibly developed in the near future, is a far cry from this Hollywood depiction.
