Cellular immunology: lymphocyte biology and immune responses to pathogens
Multi-Photon microscopy use to examine immune system in vivo
Virology: viral propagation and murine infections
Dr Scott Mueller is an ARC Future Fellow in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology, at the Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity. Scott is a world leader in basic immunology research and 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 post-doctoral 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. Scott was integral in the development of a confocal and in vivo 2-photon imaging facility in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology. His laboratory is researching immune responses to acute and chronic viral infections.
