Ueli Suter is Professor for Cell Biology in the Department of Biology of the ETH Zürich. He studied Biology II at the Biocenter of the University of Basel where he also earned his Ph.D. in 1988, working on the Molecular Mechanisms of Allergies in connection with an industrial dissertation in the research laboratories of Ciba-Geigy (now NOVARTIS). Following a brief period at the University of Montreal in 1989, he moved to Stanford University Medical School where he became interested in Molecular and Cellular Neurobiology, in particular in Neurotrophin Signaling and Processing. In 1993, he was appointed to the ETH Zürich. The current focus of the research of Ueli Suter concerns the fundamental principles of Neuron-Glia Interactions during the development, differentiation, maintenance and regeneration of the nervous system, with a particular emphasis on neurodegenerative diseases, most notably Neuropathies and Multiple Sclerosis. His research interests extend further into Stem Cell Biology and modern methods in Mouse Genetics.
