Principal Investigator, Inflammasome Lab
Director, IMB Centre for Inflammation Research
NHMRC Leadership Fellow




Professor Kate Schroder heads the Inflammasome Laboratory at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience (IMB), University of Queensland, as an NHMRC L2 Leadership Fellow. Kate is also the Director of the IMB Centre for Inflammation and Disease Research, the former Chair of the IMB Diversity and Inclusion Committee (2018-2020), and an editorial board member for Science Signaling, Cell Death and Disease, and Clinical and Translational Immunology. Kate’s graduate studies with Prof David Hume defined novel macrophage activation mechanisms, and her PhD was awarded in 2005. Her subsequent postdoctoral research with Profs Hume and Sweet identified surprising inter-species divergence in the inflammatory programs of human versus mouse macrophages. As an NHMRC CJ Martin Fellow in Switzerland, Kate then trained with Prof Jürg Tschopp, a pioneer in the fields of inflammasome and cell death signalling pathways. Kate returned to Australia, and was appointed an IMB Lab Head in 2013. Kate’s laboratory investigates how inflammasomes signal to induce cell death and inflammation, how inflammasome signalling controls microbial infection but drives pathological inflammation in diseases, and mechanisms of inflammasome inhibition by new small molecule inhibitors. The Inflammasome Lab contributed to the development of small molecule inflammasome inhibitors that are currently entering phase II clinical trials by the UQ start-up company, Inflazome Ltd, as novel anti-inflammatory therapeutics. Inflazome Ltd was recently acquired by Roche to progress these drug candidates to the clinic. Kate served on the Inflazome Scientific Advisory Board from 2016-2017, and serves as a consultant for biotech and big pharmaceutical companies.
Kate has published more than 120 articles in top journals such as Cell, Science, Nature Medicine, Nature Genetics, Science Immunology, Nature Chemical Biology, Journal of Experimental Medicine, and PNAS USA. She is an enthusiastic mentor for her team, and an advocate for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion within and outside of UQ. Kate is the recipient of the 2022 Women in Technology Award, 2020 Australian Academy of Science Nancy Millis Medal, 2019 Merck Medal, 2019 ANZSCDB Emerging Leader Award, 2014 Milstein Young Investigator Award, 2013 QLD Tall Poppy Award, 2010 QLD Premier’s Postdoctoral Award, and the 2008 Society for Leukocyte Biology’s Dolph Adams Award.


The Inflammasome Lab integrates molecular and cell biology approaches with in vivo studies to gain a holistic understanding of inflammasome function during infection, and inflammasome dysfunction in human inflammatory disease, and the potential for inflammasome inhibitors to treat human diseases. Our recent studies have yielded exciting new insights into the mechanisms governing inflammasome-mediated inflammation in vitro and in vivo, and new candidate therapies to treat human autoinflammatory, inflammatory and neurodegenerative diseases.
