Katie Allen Career
From 1998, Allen was employed as a paediatric allergist and gastroenterologist at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne. After completing a PhD at the University of Melbourne in the development of liver cell transplantation as an alternative to whole organ transplantation,Dr Allen undertook Australia’s first liver cell transplantation in 2004.
While initially successful she subsequently provided scientific evidence that liver cell transplantation was not yet ready for long-term clinical application.She has held professorial rank at the University of Melbourne and University of Manchester, and in 2013 was appointed director of the Centre of Food and Allergy Research at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (MCRI).
Allen’s work with insurance companies was seminal in ensuring premiums were not increased as a result of genetic testing. Allen advocated that people who are screened for the disease should be rewarded not penalised.In 2016, Allen described a link between Asian migration to Australia and increased risk of food allergy. “We know there are rising rates of migration from East Asia to Australia. Our finding that migration from Asia to Australia after birth can protect against early onset allergic disease such as food allergy provides a potent clue for us to follow when trying to understand why food allergy is on the rise.
Outside of her research, Allen has served as chair of the Melbourne Girls Grammar school council and as a director of Cabrini Health, a non-profit Catholic healthcare service.In 2015 Allen was elected an Inaugural Fellow of the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences.
Allen was the Liberal candidate in Prahran at the 2018 Victorian state election, losing to the incumbent Greens MP Sam Hibbins.In February 2019, she won preselection for the Division of Higgins, replacing the retiring MP Kelly O’Dwyer.Dr Allen’s strong health background resulted in a 2019 election commitment to fund better mental health services in Higgins including a Headspace facility.She then retained the seat for the Liberals at the 2019 federal election despite suffering a six percent swing–enough to drop the Liberal majority to 53 percent, making Higgins a marginal seat for the first time.
Beyond health, Allen has played an active role in advocating for strong action on climate change and how to achieve a carbon-neutral future.Allen has been vocal on the need for education reform to support high achievers,support for rural GPs,Labor’s Medevac law,the prospect of tax on sugar-sweetened beverages tertiary education reform,and support for LGBT rights.On 10 February 2022, Allen crossed the floor with four other Liberal MPs for an amendment to the Sex Discrimination Act to include protection for transgender students. Ultimately Allen voted in favour of the final reading of the bill.
