Anthony Bosco was born and raised near Fremantle, Western Australia. He was awarded his PhD in 2007 from the University of Western Australia. He received Postdoctoral training at the Arizona Respiratory Centre and BIO5 Institute, The University of Arizona.
He leads a unique research program that is underpinned by the concept that genes do not exist nor function in isolation, they work together in networks. His lab employs network graph theory and computational systems biology to work backwards (reverse engineering) from genomic profiles of immune responses to reconstruct the wiring diagram of the underlying gene networks.
The long-term goal of this work is to unlock the basic mechanisms and principles that govern the functionality of the immune system in healthy versus diseased states, unveiling actionable targets for therapeutic intervention.
