How many people would be scared away by the eye spots? I can think of a few (mom:). Amazing trip to #MariaIsland, Tasmania for @WildImmunity
Thank you to everyone who continues to support our research through the Save the Tasmanian devil appeal. The #TassieDevil immunology and vaccine research has been sustained by this program and led to a successful 3-year ARC DECRA fellowship for Dr Andrew Flies @WildImmunity.
