Professor Rodney Phillips is Dean of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of New South Wales. Best known for his ground-breaking research on retroviruses, as published in Nature, he was first to describe a critical means by which Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) evades human immune responses; specifically, escaping cytotoxic T cell recognition. Professor Phillips’ high standing is readily evidenced by his extensive senior appointments and Board roles at the University of Oxford prior to joining UNSW. He would be a valuable and influential addition to the Fellowship.
