Professor Robert Booy is Head of the Clinical Research team at the National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance (NCIRS) where he joined in March, 2005. He is a medical graduate of the University of Queensland (1984) and trained in Paediatrics at the Royal Children's Hospital, Brisbane.
Professor Booys research interests extend from understanding the genetic basis of susceptibility to, and severity of, infectious diseases especially influenza and invasive disease caused by encapsulated organisms, the clinical, public-health, social and economic burden of these diseases (acutely and over the long-term) and means by which to prevent or control serious infections through vaccines, drugs and non-pharmaceutical measures. Over the past 10 years, Professor Booy has been increasingly recognised as an expert in the influenza field, supervising many studies addressing the burden and prevention of influenza disease in children and adults in the UK, Australia and among Muslim pilgrims to Saudi Arabia. In addition he has led intervention studies with new vaccines, new vaccine delivery methods and alternate methods for preventing disease and transmission such as antivirals and personal protective equipment.
