Dr Vanessa Bryant is a Laboratory Head at The Walter & Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research in Melbourne. Vanessa completed her PhD in immunology at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research in Sydney with Professor Stuart Tangye, before performing her postdoctoral research with Professor Jean-Laurent Casanova at The Rockefeller University in New York.

Vanessa’s research aims to solve the underlying genomic and functional causes of rare primary immunodeficiencies, focused on the heterogeneous disorder Common Variable Immunodeficiency (CVID), both as a primary immunodeficiency in itself, and as a model for other complex immune disorders. Her work with the Immunology Flagship programs of Melbourne and Australian Genomics implements early, accurate gene-based diagnoses to allow precision therapeutic interventions. Dr Bryant’s research combines functional genomics with quantitative immunology to transform the way we approach and treat rare and complex immune disorders.
