Professor Robert Brink

Professor Robert Brink is Head of the Immunology Research Division at the Garvan Institute. He is an expert in the generation of sophisticated genetically modified mouse models designed to elucidate in vivo B cell biology. These models he has generated have been successfully employed within his laboratory and in laboratories around the world to make landmark findings. In the last year he has successfully used CRISPR/Cas9 technology to generate mice carrying mutations in B cell genes. He will provide local advice to the CRE in the implementation and scaling-up of this technology.
