Join Jacobson lab

Current projects | Student research projects

We aim to identify novel transcriptional and epigenetic pathways that regulate antibody-mediated responses and the formation of immune memory in health, chronic infectious disease and autoimmunity.

We're part of the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute, a member of the Infection and Immunity Program
and the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

Whether you want to research, invest, donate or partner with us to accelerate our life-changing discoveries, we'd be delighted to hear from you. We have opportunities for PhD students, post docs and senior researchers to join our lab. Feel free to contact Associate Professor Good-Jacobson with any queries.

Immunity is of central importance to all organisms, as their very survival is dependent upon the ability to fight infection
and disease. Associate Professor Kim Jacobson and Professor Mariapia Degli-Esposti and are understanding how our
immune system identifies foreign invaders such as viruses and are paving the way in the development
of breakthrough treatments.
