Professor Stephen Alexander
Stephen is a long-term collaborator with Professor Vineusa, Professor Cook and Professor Kitching, and is a paediatric nephrologist with expertise in autoimmune and inflammatory diseases of the kidney in children. He counts with 96 publications and h-index of 29 and has made significant contributions to understanding cellular regulation of renal inflammation. Highlights include identifying the role for TFH and regulatory CD8 T cells in membranous nephritis. He is a clinical leader in the paediatric and transplantation professional community and this experience will help us to develop research capacity that extends beyond the immediate field of immunology. His standing in the field is reflected by international invitations to speak and representation on the councils of both ANZSN and TSANZ.
