Associate Prof. Isabelle Rouiller

Isabelle Rouiller graduated as a Biochemical Engineer (INSA Lyon, 1994). She obtained her PhD studying the assembly of African Swine Fever Virus (1998) and trained as a postdoctoral fellow in single particle cryo-EM and electron tomography (The Scripps Research Institute and The Burnham Institute, San Diego, USA). She established her own cryo-EM laboratory at McGill University (Montreal, 2007) studying medically important macromolecular complexes. In 2017, she joined the department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Melbourne.

Research Interests

The core of the research lab is structure-function studies of macromolecular complexes using cryo-EM. A particular focus is proteins that are promising for vaccine development and proteins that are important for the treatment of cancer and neurological diseases.
