One of the main pushers of COVID-19 and lockdown and experimental vaccines in Australia. Receives funds both direct from Pfizer and from major Pfizer shareholder the Gates Foundation.

The Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity (Doherty Institute) at the University of Melbourne is in its own words "a leader in research and clinical management of HIV and infectious diseases. the Doherty Institute has more than 700 staff who work on infection and immunity through a broad spectrum of activities."[1]

Support from Pfizer

In September 2019, the Institute signed an agreement with Pfizer "to identify and validate new targets for cancer therapy". University of Melbourne Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences Associate Dean Mike McGuckin welcomed the support from Pfizer through the new research agreement[2]:

The University of Melbourne is seeking to deepen its relationships with industry and this support from Pfizer is a great example of the synergy that can be found between high quality fundamental research and the translational drug development expertise of industry."[2]

In addition to the funds direct from Pfizer, it also receives funding from major Pfizer and Moderna shareholder the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, a tax-dodge for Bill Gates.[3]
