Professor Jennifer Stow is a molecular cell biologist. She has had a lifelong fascination with cells, the ‘ultimate factories’, and how they work.  After being awarded a PhD from Monash University, and training at Yale University School of Medicine, her first faculty appointment was at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School. 

Professor Stow is renown for her research on protein trafficking which has revealed how proteins critical for inflammation and cancer are moved around inside cells or transported out of cells. The cell signalling pathways that regulate these processes are also investigated in her search for ways to combat disease. Advanced imaging of molecules in living cells provides Professor Stow’s group with a remarkable window into the sub cellular universe and a way to observe cell behaviour.
