Job title: Associate Director, Multiple Sclerosis Research Unit
Michael Mingueneau is an immunologist/neuroimmunologist experienced with target identification, validation and advancing drug discovery programs in the fields of Immunology, Neuroimmunology and Autoimmunity. As R&D project and group lead at Biogen, he directs a group of scientists on cross-functional project teams to develop therapeutics for the treatment for both relapsing and progressive forms of Multiple Sclerosis. Before joining the MS research unit, Michael was part of the Biogen Immunology department and led target identification and validation efforts in peripheral autoimmune indications including Sjögren’s disease, SLE and scleroderma. Before Biogen, Michael Mingueneau completed his postdoctoral training in the laboratories of Drs. C. Benoist and D. Mathis (Harvard Medical School, Boston, US) following Ph.D. studies with Dr. B. Malissen (CIML, Marseille, France). He previously developed genetically engineered mouse models and used systems biology approaches to better understand cellular differentiation of immune cells in both physiological (Immgen project, www.immgen.org) and pathological conditions (type-1 diabetes, lymphoproliferative disorders).
