Postdoctoral fellow, Wisconsin Institute for Discovery, Madison, WI, USA
Ethan Lippmann holds a bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a doctoral degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His dissertation focused on using various stem cell sources to model the blood-brain barrier (BBB) in vitro. Notably, under the supervision of Eric Shusta and Sean Palecek, he devised a method to differentiate human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) into endothelial cells possessing a blood-brain barrier (BBB) phenotype. Currently, he is a postdoctoral fellow at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery where he is developing novel hPSC differentiation methods to facilitate discrete control of neural fates.
