Associate Professor Alan Murray BSc (Hons), PhD Soton

Associate Professor

School of Veterinary Science

Graduated BSc (Hons) in Physiology with Biochemistry from the School of Biochemical & Physiological Sciences at the University of Southampton in 1978. Graduated with PhD in Medical Microbiology from the Faculty of Medicine at University of Southampton in 1985. Following Research Fellowships in Clinical Pharmacology at Southampton and Renal Physiology at the University of Keele arrived at Massey University in 1987 to work in the Department of Veterinary Pathology & Public Health. Now a member of the Pathobiology Group within IVABS and based in the Hopkirk Research Institute. Since 1990, have been undertaking collaborative research on the genetics and immunology of pathogenic mycobacteria at the Unité de Génétique Mycobactérienne at the Institut Pasteur in Paris.

I teach Immunology to Veterinary and Science students and have a research interest in mycobacterial proteins that interact with the host immune system during infection. This type of information is potentially useful to help us understand why mycobacterial infections are so difficult to control and it could lead to a better understanding of pathogenesis and the development of improved vaccines and diagnostic tests.
