Serge Mostowy completed his Ph.D. at McGill University, Montreal, Canada, in 2006 with Marcel Behr.
After postdoctoral work in the laboratory of Pascale Cossart at the Institut Pasteur in Paris, France, he joined the Department of Medicine at Imperial College, London, UK, in 2012 as a Wellcome Trust Research Career Development Fellow to study how cells control infection by cytosolic host responses, including septin assembly and autophagy.
