Her group is developing ways to improve immune responses in older individuals during infection, vaccination, and new cell-based therapies such as chimeric antigen receptor T cell therapy CTT. CTT can achieve remarkable remission rates in haematological cancers. Unfortunately, this efficacy can be reduced in older patients, as their immune cells are more difficult to activate. Her work aims to identify what limits this activation of immune cells and to remove that barrier for older patients. At the VRC, she defined the mechanism of action for several novel vaccines and provided key pre-clinical data for Ebola vaccine selection by the World Health Organisation in More broadly, Kylie has a long-standing interest in issues of equity and inclusion in science and is the current Australia and New Zealand Society of Immunology Women's Initiative Coordinator.

After a PhD in New Zealand on vaccine strategies for Tuberculosis, Dr Quinn took post-doctoral positions in Dr Robert Seder's lab ; Vaccine Research Center, NIH , where she defined the mechanism of action for a number of novel vaccines and provided key pre-clinical data for Ebola vaccine selection by the World Health Organisation in , and in Prof Nicole La Gruta's lab ; University of Melbourne, Monash University , where she developed a project on how ageing limits the function of immune cells known as CD8 or "killer" T cells. Dr Quinn's research group at RMIT focuses on developing ways to improve immune responses in the elderly during infection, vaccination and cell-based therapies. In particular, she aims to refine chimeric antigen receptor T cell therapy CTT , where a sample of a patient's 'killer' immune cells are activated in the lab, modified with a cancer-seeking receptor and transferred back into the patient, where they kill cancerous cells. It can achieve remarkable remission rates, but it is less successful in older patients, as their immune cells are difficult activate.

Mormons who marry other Mormons in Mormon temples have a 6. I married a non-member over 20 years ago. My youngest starts Kindergarten next fall. We also live in a foreign country which is another element of difficulty. It seems like a minor point, but I have noticed that every Mormon girl who disobeys the Mormon direction to avoid coffee has something majorly wrong with her. You guys are looking into this wayyyyyyy too much. How is that gonna work. If yes, do you promise to not proselytize to me and let me drink a simple cup of coffee in my own home.
