Projects

Mechanistic studies of Jack Jumper Venom desensitisation at the T cell level (2014)$5,000
Description
Allergy to Jack Jumper venom is an acute medical emergency which potentially affects >1% of Tasmanians. Desensitisation by venom immunisation therapy (VIT) protects against severe reactions, but the precise mechanism has not been elucidated. This project seeks to understand how immune cells are re-educated to prevent life-threatening allergy.
