Tim Stinear



Professor Tim Stinear (BSc Hons, PhD, FASM) is a molecular microbiologist and research-teaching academic at the Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity, University of Melbourne. He leads a team of scientists who use comparative and functional genomics to understand how human bacterial pathogens spread and cause disease. He is the Scientific Director of the Doherty Applied Microbial Genomics initiative and a Senior Research Fellow of the National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia. Tim did his PhD at Monash University, Australia in 2001, followed by a three-year postdoctoral period at the Pasteur Institute in Paris, France. His research bridges the nexus between fundamental science and clinical infectious diseases. His research is at the forefront of implementing innovative genomic approaches to study bacterial pathogens, in particular pathogens of major clinical significance such as Staphylococcus aureus and vancomycin resistant enterococci.
