Biographies

Jacques Miller is Professor Emeritus at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research (WEHI) and at the University of Melbourne. He was Head of Experimental Pathology Unit at the WEHI (1966-1996) and is recognised as having discovered the function of the thymus. Miller and his PhD student Graham Mitchell proved the existence and function of T cells and B cells, which has significantly opened up whole new fields for the study of immunology, including the study of cancer, autoimmune disease, transplantation and HIV and AIDS. Jacques Miller continues to be one of the most respected research thymus biologists in the world and has received many, many accolades and awards including the Florey Medal 2000; the 2001 Copley Medal and Prize of the Royal Society, London; the 2003 Prime Minister's Prize for Science; and an Officer in the Order of Australia (AO).
