SEAS welcomes Dr. Anne-Laure Papa, who joins the school as an assistant professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering.
Dr. Papa conducts research in engineering novel therapeutic platforms at the interface of chemistry, biology, and medicine. Her work focuses on disease processes, particularly in cancer and vascular diseases, with the goal of designing targeted translational therapies and new diagnostic methods. Her research is based on understanding system interactions (i.e. cell-cell and cell-particle) and delivery platforms (particle-based targeting strategies, as well as cellular therapeutics).
Dr. Papa received her Ph.D. from the University of Bourgogne, France, and subsequently served as a post-doctoral fellow at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard–MIT Program of Health Sciences and Technology. Following that, she served as a post-doctoral fellow at Harvard University’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering.
