Christine Mummery

Christine Mummery is Professor of Developmental Biology at Leiden University Medical Center. Following a PhD in Biophysics, she moved to the Hubrecht Institute to study ion channels and later, cardiovascular diseases using pluripotent stem cells from patients, developing organ-on-chip models. This has centred on safety pharmacology to predict toxic effects of drugs on the human heart and capturing cardiac and vascular disease phenotypes including identifying individual vulnerability and drug sensitivity. She was president of the International Society for Stem Cell Research (2020-2021) and co-founded the European Organ-on-Chip Society. She is also a member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Science. In 2021, she was awarded the Lefoulon Delalande Prize jointly with Gordon Keller.
