Ludovic Vallier

Ludovic Vallier received his PhD from Ecole Normale Superieure of Lyon /University Claude Bernard in 2001 where he studied the function of cell cycle regulators in pluripotency. He then joined the group of Prof. Roger Pedersen at the University of Cambridge, Department of Surgery, where he uncovered the mechanisms by which TGF signaling controls self-renewal and differentiation of human pluripotent stem cells. He became an independent investigator in 2008 after receiving a MRC non clinical senior fellowship and was named Professor of Regenerative Medicine in 2015. He was the manager of the NIHR Cambridge Biomedical Research Centre human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells core facility between 2009-2022 and was co-deputy director of the Wellcome and MRC Cambridge Stem Cell Institute until 2022. He recently joined the Berlin Institute of Health (BIH) as Einstein Professor of Stem Cells Biology. His group based at BIH Center for Regenerative Therapy (BCRT) takes advantage of human pluripotent stem cells and primary organoids to generate liver cells with a clinical interest for disease modelling and cell-based therapy. More precisely, they investigate the molecular mechanisms controlling cell fate decisions during human liver development and exploit the resulting knowledge to produce hepatocytes and cholangiocytes. The resulting cells are currently used to study metabolic disorders and to develop regenerative medicine applications against liver diseases.
