Steve Daley is an immunologist in the Centre for Immunology and Infection Control at QUT. He initially trained and practiced as a veterinarian before making the switch to immunology for his doctorate at the University of Oxford, graduating in 2007. He returned to Australia for postdoctoral training at the Australian National University in Canberra, using mouse models to understand natural mechanisms that prevent autoimmune disease. In 2014 he was recruited to Monash University to set up his own lab. Working with clinicians, bioinformaticians, and structural biologists, he is testing the idea that autoimmune disease originates in the thymus, where T cells develop.
Steve Daley has supervised 2 PhD students and 2 Honours students to completion.
While undertaking research at Monash University, Steve lectured third year undergraduates on T cell selection from 2017 to 2019.
