Dr Eric Hill

Stem Cell Biologist

School of Life & Health Sciences

Aston Research Centre for Healthy Ageing (ARCHA)

Eric is currently working on creating a dynamic model of Alzheimer's disease. This model moves the field away from animal research or the use of brain banks, to new developments in stem cell technology to create what he describes as a "disease in a dish." 
 
His research interests include the development of tissue engineering strategies to model stem cell behaviour in the development of neuronal networks and also during neuro degeneration. 
 
Media experience
  • Eric is available to provide comment on both written and broadcast media. He has featured on BBC TV Midlands Today talking about his stem cell technology for the pioneering MESO-BRAIN research project being led by Aston University.      
Areas of expertise
  • Induced pluripotent stem cell technology (iPSC).
