Professor Elaine Holmes awarded Australia Research Council Australian Laureate Fellowship

Professor Elaine Holmes, Murdoch University Director of the Centre for Computational and Systems Medicine and Premier’s Research Fellow, has been awarded the prestigious Australian Laureate Fellowship from the Australia Research Council (ARC).

Professor Holmes, one of only 14 Australian leading academics recognised in 2020, has been awarded over $3.36 million to deepen our understanding of age-related changes in the gut microbiome – the complex community of bacteria and other microbes that reside in the intestine and plays an important role in health and wellbeing.

The aim of Professor Holmes Fellowship is to make significant advance in the understanding of host-microbiome signalling in ageing which could lead the way to preventative therapies and individualised treatments.
