Dr Alan Harris research and career

The scholarship is named in honour of cell biologist Dr Alan Harris (1938-2006), who was the first to establish continuously growing lines of antibody producing cells. One of his lines was later used in the landmark development of monoclonal antibodies.

During his 36-year research career at the institute, Dr Harris made singular contributions in the fields of genetics, immunology, cancer biology and histopathology.

He had a particular rapport with students and young scientists, building their confidence and earning their lifelong respect, affection and gratitude.
