Get in Touch

The AusPollen Partnership is a multi-centre cross-disciplinary team of investigators including eminent allergy physicians and scientists. Our AusPollen team has extensive expertise in allergic respiratory disease, plant biotechnology, molecular immunology, pollen aerobiology, climatology, and biostatistics.

The AusPollen Partnership Project is currently supported by NHMRC and in kind and cash contributions from Asthma Australia, Australasian Society for Clinical Immunology and Allergy, The Bureau of Meteorology, MeteoSwiss (Switzerland), Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation and Stallergenes Australia.

The Partnership Project is managed by Queensland University of Technology

Forerunner Projects

Towards the Australian Pollen Allergen Partnership for better management of pollen exposure and respiratory health outcomes

Funded by the Allergy and Immunology Foundation of Australasia (2015- June 2016) with co-sponsorship from Asthma Australia and Stallergenes Australia.

The Australian Aerobiology Working Group  was funded by The Australian Centre for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis, a Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network NCRIS intitiative (2013-2014).  MSD provided untied co-sponsorship. 

The team analysed existing pollen count data from different regions of Australia. Currently available pollen count data sets demonstrated  evidence of regional and seasonal variability in airborne pollen levels. Limitations in the existing data sets and the insufficient capacity to monitor pollen aerobiology in Australia were revealed.
