Justine Mintern

 

Dr J. Mintern is a Senior Lecturer and laboratory head in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Melbourne at the Bio21 Molecular Science and Biotechnology Institute. Her research team investigates how cargo is delivered to the right destination inside cells.

Her research probes the fundamental cell biology of intracellular trafficking in immune cells. Dr Mintern’s research has lead to significant discoveries in the fields of endocytosis, autophagy and ubiquitin-mediated trafficking. Dr Mintern is an expert immunologist and cell biologist having undertaken more than 10 years of research training in prestigious institutions including Harvard Medical School, USA, Whitehead Institute of Biomedical Research, USA, Walter and Eliza Hall Institute and The University of Melbourne. She has made significant contributions to our understanding of dendritic cell biology and mechanisms of antigen presentation including in settings of live immunity and vaccination. Her research aims to advance vaccine design and to harness the immunotherapeutic potential of dendritic cells. Moreover she strives to make significant advances in the understanding of the fundamental biology of intracellular trafficking in immune and non immune cell types.
