Damián Hernández

Dr. Damián Hernández completed his PhD in the cardiac regeneration group at the University of Melbourne under the supervision of  Dr Shiang Lim and Professor Greg Dusting. He developed a cardiac tissue engineering system to study the effect of electrical stimulation in cardiac differentiation of pluripotent stem cells and maturation of cardiac cells. In 2016 he joined Professor Alice Pebay’s group, at the Centre for Eye Research Australia and now at the University of Melbourne to study Alzheimer’s disease with a human model of three-dimensional cerebral organoids derived form human pluripotent stem cells.
