Miriam Bibel is Senior Research Investigator at The Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research. In her current position she is Project Head in Autoimmunity / Transplantation / Inflammation with a focus on cell fate and cell plasticity in the immune system.
Previously her postdoctoral work at the Friedrich Miescher Institute on establishing a novel system to differentiate mouse embryonic stem (ES) cells into neurons (for which a collaboration with the lab of Austin Smith was key) led her to establish this system for drug discovery within Novartis. Its novel aspect of generating a defined and especially uniform population of CNS neurons opened new opportunities to study mechanisms of neurodegeneration and neuroregeneration in vitro, identify and validate targets of neurodegenerative diseases and also use neuronal populations for screening assays in drug discovery.
