We congratulate Professor Alice Pébay (AM), who has been recognised for her significant service to science, particularly through stem cell and neuroscience research by being appointed a Member of the Order of Australia (AM).

In 2022, Professor Pebay joined Phenomics Australia In Vitro services as a Scientific Leader being the Head of the Stem Cell Disease Modelling Laboratory at the University of Melbourne.

Professor Alice Pébay

Prof. Pébay obtained a 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.

Alice’s team aims to use patient-specific pluripotent stem cells to model neurodegenerative diseases of the eye and brain. 

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 National Health & Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Career Development Fellowship in 2012, subsequently an Australian Research Council Future Fellowship in 2014 and is an NHMRC Senior Research Fellow. Alice is the primary inventor of three granted international patents related to stem cell technology.
