Engineering pancreatic cells: cell fate choices and plasticity

 

Speaker biography - Dr Francesca Spagnoli

After graduating from Medical School, Francesca received her Ph.D. in Genetics from the Pasteur Institute and UPMC in Paris, France. She then did her postdoc at The Rockefeller University, New York, USA, in the Brivanlou lab. In 2008, she established her own research group at the Max Delbrück Center in Berlin, Germany, where she has initiated new lines of investigation on the control of pancreatic cell identity and lineage reprogramming strategies. Francesca has recently moved to London to become a Group Leader at the Centre for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine, King's College London. She has been the recipient of prestigious grants, including an ERC Starting grant and ERC Proof-of-Concept grant. More recently, Francesca became the coordinator of a FET Open European consortium on bio-engineering pancreatic tissue called Pan3DP.
