Biography

Anne Brüstle is a group leader in the Department of Immunology and Infectious Disease at the John Curtin School of Medical Research, Australian National University in Canberra.

 

Anne completed her PhD in 2008 at the Institute of Medical Microbiology, Philipps-University in Marburg, Germany, where she focused on investigating T helper (h) cell differentiation in the interferon regulatory factor (IRF) 4 deficient mouse. Her major accomplishment during her PhD work was the identification of IRF4 as a crucial transcription factor for the differentiation of Th17 cells.

She spent the following years as a Postdoctoral Fellow in Dr. Tak Mak's laboratory in Toronto, Canada. There she combined her experience in the field of T helper cell differentiation with related autoimmune disease mouse models, as well as extended her expertise into different aspects of immunology. In addition, she participated in multiple studies in the fields of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), viral infection, autoimmunity and haematopoiesis.

Mid 2014, Anne was recruited to the John Curtin School of Medical Research, where she is currently establishing her own independent research group on inflammatory T cell responses. Here, she is expanding her research from mouse models of autoimmunity into human disease with an emphasis on inflammation of the central nervous system (MS).
