Dr Fleur Ponton

Chief Investigator

Macquarie University

Dr Fleur Ponton’s research aims to better understand the network of interactions that defines the relationships between nutrition and infection, integrating the roles of the host microbiota and immunity. She works with insect models including Drosophila melanogaster and the Queensland fruit fly Bactrocera tryoni to describe nutritional immunology and host-parasite relationships. The methods she has established are of broad interest to numerous research disciplines, spanning from nutrition and life-history theory to public and environmental health. More Info
