Christine Mummery, PhD

Professor of Developmental Biology
Chair, Department of Anatomy and Embryology
Leiden University Medical Center

Christine Mummery’s research focuses on cardiovascular development and disease models and developing biophysical techniques for characterization and functional analysis of cardiovascular cells from hPS cells, with the ultimate aim of understanding underlying disease mechanisms and drugs for treatment through bioassays. Aside from cardiomyocytes, endothelial cells and vascular smooth muscle cells take a central role in her research, including a study of hemorrhaging disease caused by mutations in TGFß receptors. Through collaboration with clinicians in Leiden and Utrecht and engineers in UTwente, her lab is currently implementing methods for creating synthetic 2-D and 3-D normal and (genetically) diseased vascular and myocardial tissue.
