Glen Scholz

 

Glen Scholz is a Principal Research Fellow and an Associate Professor at the Bio21 Molecular Science and Biotechnology Institute and Melbourne Dental School. Glen joined The University of Melbourne in 2002, after postdoctoral research positions at the Rockefeller University in New York, and the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research in Melbourne.

His research seeks to understand the inflammatory responses of innate immune cells to bacterial pathogens, and how pathogens attempt to disrupt or hijack specific pathways in these cells to dysregulate host immunity. This is important because the dysregulation of host immunity is central to the pathogenesis of many human diseases, including periodontitis, inflammatory bowel disease, and orogastrointestinal cancers. However, by understanding the complex interactions between innate immune cells and bacterial pathogens he hopes to develop more effective therapeutic approaches (e.g. drugs and vaccines) to treat various diseases.
