He was Professor of Microbiology, University of Melbourne, 1967–1994 and was Head of the Depart- ment of Microbiology for 14 of those years. He also filled other high-level appointments in the university, including Assistant Dean of Medicine (Preclinical), 1971–82; Dean of Research and Graduate Studies, 1974–75; Chairman, Academic Board, 1977–1978; and Pro-Vice-Chancellor, 1975–78. David graduated in medicine from the University of Sydney in 1954 and completed a PhD in virology at the Australian National University. For his PhD, he devised new ways to work with influenza virus in the laboratory, and influenza virus became the central focus of the research he did throughout his life. He made major contributions to elucidating the molecular biology and immunology of influenza virus. In one of several overseas appointments he was Damon Runyon Fellow in Cancer Research, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York, 1965–66, where he published with MD Scharff and JV Maizel a series of papers characterizing the polypeptides of human adenovirus using the then novel method of polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis.
