Serge Mostowy studied Physics, Evolution, and Microbiology & Immunology at McGill University in Canada. After postdoctoral work on the Cell Biology of Infection at Institut Pasteur in France, he moved to Imperial College London in 2012 to start a Wellcome Trust Research Career Development Fellowship. His lab is now part of the MRC Centre of Molecular Bacteriology and Infection, where he investigates novel roles for the cytoskeleton in innate immunity.

Serge also developed the zebrafish as an important model to study the cell biology of infection and therapeutic potential of targeting the cytoskeleton in vivo. His findings should be of considerable interest for both cell biologists and infection biologists, and make a cutting edge platform for in vivo studies both at the single cell and whole animal level. Serge is a Wellcome Beit (2012), Lister Institute of Preventive Medicine (2015), and Wellcome Trust Senior Research Fellow (2017).
