Harald Mischak, born 1961 in St. Pölten, Austria, received his PhD in technical science from the Technical University of Vienna, Austria, in 1986 (grade "excellent").

Between 1988 and 1993, after postdoctoral work on the Rhinovirus receptor at the University of Vienna (Institute for Biochemistry), he worked as an invited scientist on signalling by protein kinase C and Raf at the Laboratory of Viral Carcinogenesis (funded by the Fulbright Foundation) and as a Schroedinger and Fogarty Fellow at the Laboratory of Genetics of NIH National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, Maryland, USA.

He continued his research on kinases as Group Leader at the GSF - National Research Center for Environment and Health, Munich, Germany, from 1993-1998.
He wrote his “habilitation” (postdoctoral lecture qualification) in clinical microbiology at the Technical University of Munich on Protein Kinase C in signal transduction. After one year as a scientific group leader at Franz-Volhard Klinikum (MDC) at Berlin-Buch, he worked on the structure of kinases and related molecules at the NIDDK, Bethesda, Maryland, USA.

In 1999 he took up a position at the Department of Nephrology at Medical School of Hannover. Here he founded mosaiques diagnostics and therapeutics AG in 2002 with the aim to identify disease-specific polypeptides.

Harald Mischak is a member of the European Uremic Toxin (EUTox) Work Group of the European Society for Artificial Organs (ESAO), and ERA-EDTA (European Renal Association - European Dialysis and Transplant Association).

Currently, he holds a position as Professor in the Department of Nephrology at the Medical School of Hannover, and is Chief Scientific Officer of mosaiques diagnostics and therapeutics AG as well as general manager of mosaiques diagnostics GmbH.

In February 2010, he was appointed Chair of Proteomics at the University of Glasgow where he leads proteomics research within the British Heart Foundation Glasgow Cardiovascular Research Centre (BHF GCRC).

With more than 200 peer reviewed manuscripts published on signaling and proteomics that have been cited over 12.000 times (h-index 61), he is one of the leading experts worldwide in the field of proteome research and applied systems biology.
