Alice Pébay's Biography

Alice Pébay, Associate Professor, Principal Research Fellow

Associate Professor Pébay obtained her PhD in Neurosciences from the University of Paris VI in 2001 and subsequently joined Professor Martin Pera at Monash University to undertake research on human pluripotent stem cells. She then continued her research in this area at the University of Melbourne where she commenced in 2007. Since 2012, Alice has been appointed to both the Centre for Eye Research Australia and The University of Melbourne. There she is the head of the Neuroregeneration Research Unit, which aims to use patient specific stem cells to model blinding diseases. Alice has a proven track record in generating iPSCs and differentiating them into various cell types for disease modelling including those affecting the central nervous system and the eye. Alice and her collaborators have pioneered the use of automation for human pluripotent stem cell research in Australia, enabling the streamlining generation and maintenance of iPSC-derived cells from hundreds of patients. Alice was awarded a NHMRC Career development Fellowship in 2012 and subsequently an Australian Research Council Future Fellowship in 2014. Alice is the primary inventor of three granted international patents related to stem cell technology and neurotrauma.
