Martyn French is a Clinical Immunologist at Royal Perth Hospital and a Winthrop Professor in Clinical Immunology in the School of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine of the University of Western Australia.

His clinical and research interests over the last 30 years have focussed on primary and secondary immunodeficiency disorders, particularly HIV-induced immunodeficiency. He has made major contributions to clinical trials and HIV immunology research at a national and international level. He has been the Chair of the Immune Based Therapies Working Group and the Antiretroviral Working Group of the Australian National Centre in HIV Epidemiology and Clinical Research and is currently a member of the International Network for Strategic Initiatives in Global HIV Trials and the Immunology Group of that network.

He has conducted research on various aspects of HIV immunology, particularly immune reconstitution and disorders of immune reconstitution in HIV patients receiving antiretroviral therapy. He first described immune restoration disease and has lead research studies on this problem in Australia, Asia and Africa. He also undertakes research on disorders of immune activation and antibody production caused by HIV infection and is currently a member of a NH&MRC program grant team from four Australian universities undertaking research on HIV and HCV immunopathogenesis and vaccines.
