Arthur H. and Isabel Bunker Professor of Medicine (Hematology) and Professor of Immunobiology; Director, Center of Molecular and Cellular Oncology; Chief, Cellular and Molecular Oncology
Dr. Markus Müschen is the Arthur H. and Isabel Bunker Professor of Hematology, HHMI Faculty Scholar and was appointed Director of the Center of Molecular and Cellular Oncology at Yale in October 2020. He obtained his MD degree in Biochemistry with Helmut Sies (summa cum laude) from the Heinrich-Heine-Universität in Düsseldorf, completed his residency in Hematology-Oncology with Volker Diehl and his MD-PhD with Martin Krönke in Immunology at the University of Cologne, Germany. Since 2009, the Müschen laboratory has established new conceptual frameworks for the understanding of B-cell signaling and energy metabolism and how defects in these mechanisms contribute to autoimmunity and B-cell transformation. Influenced by his postdoctoral training in basic immunology (Klaus Rajewsky and Ralf Küppers) and cancer genetics (Janet D. Rowley), Dr. Müschen is particularly interested in signal transduction pathways that change the clinical trajectory of human B-cell malignancies and B-cell driven autoimmune diseases.
