Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD - email supervisor to discuss availability.


Professor Wayne Hein is currently Head of the School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences and Dean of Roseworthy Campus at the University of Adelaide.

Coming from a rural background in South Australia, Professor Hein began tertiary education at Roseworthy Agricultural College. He then obtained a degree in veterinary science at the University of Queensland and worked for a few years in veterinary public health before completing a PhD in immunology in the John Curtin School of Medical Research at the Australian National University. Over the next 13 years, he conducted basic research into the immune system of ruminants at the Basel Institute for Immunology, Switzerland. Following a move to New Zealand, his research interests focussed on basic and applied immunoparasitology. From 2007-2010 he was the Director of the Hopkirk Research Institute located at Massey University where research focussed on parasitic and infectious diseases of livestock. From 2011-2014 he was Professor and Head of the School of Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences and Dean of Veterinary Science at James Cook University, Australia. Professor Hein returned to South Australia as Head of the School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences and Dean of Roseworthy Campus at the University of Adelaide in February 2015.

Professor Hein has published extensively in basic and applied immunology, participated in numerous scientific advisory and review committees, given presentations at multiple national and international scientific conferences and held company director positions.

Research Interests

Professor Hein has made major contributions to current knowledge about the structure and function of the immune system in ruminants, particularly at the molecular level.  His early work focussed on the ontogeny of antigen receptor diversity in both the T and B lymphocyte lineages.  During a productive phase of research at the Basel Institute for Immunology, his group cloned and sequenced all genes encoding the T cell receptors of sheep and mapped their sequential expression in different tissues during fetal and post-natal development.  Collaborative work established the special role of the Peyer’s patches in generating the circulating B lymphocyte repertoire.  Over the past two decades, his work has dealt mainly with immune mechanisms of resistance to gastrointestinal parasites in sheep.  Due to other demands, Professor Hein currently has limited opportunities to personally conduct research, however he maintains a linkage to research through supervision of higher degree research students.
