Biography

Valerie Gouon-Evans, PharmD, PhD is an Associate Professor of Medicine in the department of Gastroenterology at the Boston University School of Medicine. After completing her graduate studies in Paris, Dr. Gouon-Evans joined Dr. Pollard's Lab as a postdoctoral fellow where she studied mammary gland development and breast cancer. She then began her career as an Instructor of Gene and Cell Medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York in the laboratory of Dr. Gordon Keller, where she pioneered protocols to efficiently generate hepatocyte-like cells from pluripotent stem cells. She quickly rose up the ranks and was promoted to Assistant Professor before arriving at Boston University. Dr. Gouon-Evans's current research interests range from liver development, regeneration, and cancer using the pluripotent stem cell platform, in vivo mouse models, and primary human tissues.
