Bio

Dr Grant Parnell is a lecturer in bioinformatics at the University of Sydney with a strong focus on the translation of transcriptomic and genomic technologies into clinical practice. He is based at the Centre for Immunology and Allergy Research at the Westmead Institute for Medical Research where he leads the Immunogenetics Group. Grant was awarded his PhD from the University of Sydney in 2014 for his work on transcriptome profiling of the immune response in patients admitted to intensive care due to systemic infection. His current research program is aimed at understanding the interaction between multiple sclerosis risk genes with environmental risk factors such as low vitamin D level and Epstein-Barr virus infection. A particular focus is investigating the role of the vitamin D receptor in myeloid cell differentiation and immunological tolerance, using advanced transcriptomic and genomic approaches.
