Melanie Greter received her PhD at the University of Zurich from the Institute of Neuroimmunology in 2007. After her postdoctoral fellowship in Miriam Merad’s lab at the Mount-Sinai School of Medicine in New York, she moved back to Zurich to establish her own group in 2011. Since 2013, she is a SNSF (Swiss National Science Foundation) professor in the Institute of Experimental Immunology at the University of Zurich.

Her research interests lie in the development and function of the mononuclear phagocyte system in health and disease. One focus is specifically the function of microglia, the resident macrophages in the central nervous system during embryonic development, homeostasis and in healthy and pathological conditions. She has recently established a new tool to specifically and genetically target microglia in vivo.
