Scotch College is delighted that Professor Peter Doherty presented this year’s Science Oration.
While he needs little introduction, he is particularly recognised for his pioneering work on immunity and killer T-cells, and was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1996.
He was Australian of the year in 1997. Professor Doherty has also written several books and scientific papers, and currently manages his research between Memphis and Melbourne.
His Oration is titled “The Killer Defence”.
