Hans Schöler, Director of the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Biomedicine in Münster, Germany, has made seminal contributions to the field of cellular pluripotency and its maintenance during embryonic development. These include the identification of the key pluripotency transcription factor Oct4 or the generation of germ cells from embryonic stem cells. His group investigates epigenetic modifications in the transcriptional regulation of gene expression important for cell reprogramming. He has been invited by Juan Valcárcel (CRG).
