Ludovic Vallier

Ludovic Vallier will take up the W3 Einstein Strategic Professorship for Stem Cells in Regenerative Therapies at the Berlin Institute of Health at Charité (BIH). Vallier is an expert in pluripotent stem cells. He uses these versatile cells to grow liver organoids, which allow him to study the development and diseases of the human liver. He also plans to use them as a source of replacement tissue for patients with liver failure. In Berlin he wants to optimize organoid production to ensure they are sufficient in both quality and quantity for a clinical trial.
