Dr Susanne Heinzel is a cellular immunologist at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute for Medical Research in Melbourne. Her work focuses on the quantitative analysis of the rules that govern the activation, survival and expansion of T and B lymphocytes in health and disease. She is interested to understand the signal integration and regulation of cell fate decisions in lymphocytes after activation. She has discovered that the oncogene Myc controls the cell division of activated lymphocytes in a time dependent manner. Her recent work has been published in journals such as Science, Nat Immunology, Nat Comms, JI and PNAS.
