Professor Robyn O’Hehir is internationally acclaimed as a key researcher in allergy. Over 25 years, she invented and established the feasibility of cloning allergen-specific T cells to define T-cell epitopes. This research has translated into practical immunotherapy for house dust mite and pollen aeroallergens, and soon for peanut allergy, all progressing in trials or to the clinic. As a respiratory physician, she has pioneered use of the natural anti-inflammatory follistatin in cystic fibrosis. She was the first adult physician to hold a full Professorship in allergy in Australia, is a Life Governor of Asthma Victoria, and has 225 publications with over 10,000 career citations.
