Professor Marshall is a medical researcher with specialist training in child health, public health and vaccinology, having completed a Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery, Doctorate of Medicine, Master in Public Health and Diploma in Child Health at the University of Adelaide and completed the international Advanced Vaccinology Course at the Pasteur Merieux Institute, France. She holds the positions of Professor in Vaccinology in the Adelaide Medical School, and Deputy Director, Clinical and Translational Research for the Robinson Research Institute at The University of Adelaide. Prof Marshall also holds the position of Senior Medical Practitioner and Medical Director, Vaccinology and Immunology Research Trials Unit (VIRTU), in the Department of Paediatrics at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital. She was awarded a NHMRC Career Development Fellowship (CDF) in 2011, a NHMRC CDF(2) in 2015 and NHMRC Practitioner Fellowship 2019-2023.

In recognition of Prof. Marshall's research leadership, she was awarded the South Australia Science Award for Excellence in Research Collaboration in 2019, Research for the Public Good in 2010, and a national Public Health Association of Australia Fellowship in 2013. Her research was included in the NHMRC “10 of the best” research projects for 2016. She was the recipient of the Australia Day Council, Inspiring South Australian Women Award in 2020.

Professor Marshall’s research program is directed to address urgent priorities in infectious disease prevention in children and includes implementation research and clinical trials in investigational and licensed vaccines, infectious and social epidemiology and public health. Her main interests include meningococcal, human papillomavirus, influenza and pertussis infections and their prevention by immunisation. Professor Marshall has been an investigator on 108 implementation, clinical and epidemiological studies. Professor Marshall’s research group, VIRTU, is the only research centre in Australia using social science research methodologies to investigate community attitudes to the introduction of new vaccines.

Since 2004, Prof. Marshall has published over 200 peer-reviewed papers in high quality general medicine and specialist journals across diverse disciplines with individual paper citations > 400. Her h-index = 44 and i10-index is 135. She has been awarded 17 NHMRC (CIA x 5, including 3 Fellowships), ARC, Government, Foundation and Industry grants totaling >$33 million. Her leadership is recognized by 41 international and 32 national invited speaker invitations.

Available Research Projects

The research program at the Vaccinology and Immunology Research Trials Unit (VIRTU) is directed to address urgent priorities
in infectious disease prevention and includes clinical trials in investigational vaccines, infectious and social epidemiology and public health. VIRTU conducts ongoing research on meningococcal, influenza, pneumococcal and pertussis vaccines and suitable HDR projects within these broad areas can be developed after discussion with Prof. Helen Marshall, Director of the Unit. One of the main areas of current research at VIRTU includes meningococcal disease.
Meningococcal disease causes significant morbidity and mortality worldwide and invasive meningococcal disease can result in long-term disability. VIRTU currently conducts several projects on meningococcal disease including the following:

  1. The “B Part of It study, the largest study of its kind globally assessing the herd immunity impact of meningococcal B vaccine.
  2. Assessing long-term physical, neurocognitive, economic and societal impact of invasive meningococcal disease in Australian adolescents and young adults
  3. Evaluation of the newly implemented South Australian immunisation program against meningococcal B disease

In addition to projects suitable for HDR students, VIRTU routinely conducts systematic reviews and meta-analyses on infectious diseases and vaccines which are suitable for third year undergraduate research students.
