Prof

Scott Mueller

 

Associate Professor Scott Mueller is an NHMRC Senior Research Fellow and laboratory head in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology, The University of Melbourne, at the Doherty Institute. Scott is a world leader in basic immunology research, using advanced microscopy methods to visualise the cells of the immune system.

Dr Mueller trained at Monash University and then the University of Melbourne where he completed a PhD, before heading to the USA where he completed postdoctoral training at Emory University, Atlanta, GA. He then spent time working at the National Institutes of Health before returning to Australia as an ARC Queen Elizabeth II Fellow to set up his laboratory. His research is focused on dissecting the fundamental cellular processes involved in immune responses to infectious diseases and cancer in order to identify new targets for vaccine design and therapeutics. Current research in his lab is also dissecting crosstalk between the immune system and the nervous system and identifying the roles of mesenchymal stromal cells in immunity to infection and cancer.
