Biographical entry Lowenthal, John

Occupation
Immunologist

Summary

Dr John Lowenthal is a specialist in avian immunology. Since 1990 he has been leading research into the potential of chicken cytokines to be developed into a low impact poultry health product to reduce the poultry industry's reliance on antibiotics and chemicals.

His research in this area has led to the development and commercialisation of chicken interferon gamma as a treatment to improve poultry's resistance to superbugs. For this research he was co-recipient of the 2003 CSIRO Medal for Research Achievement.

In 2003 Lowenthal was also instrumental in the establishment of the Poultry CRC (Cooperative Research Centre).
