I work on a minimally invasive heart valve repair device called the MitraClip. My role is to supervise a small group of quality engineers who support the manufacturing line, ensuring product quality and compliance.

“In BioE I learned working in teams with highly technical people, understanding the prototyping and design process, good laboratory practices, and problem solving.”

Our team builds exciting web applications that visualize drug manufacturing data and enable faster and more informed decisions. We work with various manufacturing groups such as Operations and Validation to understand their problems and collaborate to design new software solutions.

“With a background in bioengineering, I can make better design choices because I can understand what is happening in the manufacturing plant and what the code ultimately needs to accomplish.”

    Donald E. Ingber, M.D., Ph.D., Harvard University

    In this presentation, I will describe work we have been carrying out at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard that I head, which leverages biological design principles to develop new engineering innovations. I will highlight recent advances that my team has made in the engineering of “Organs-on-Chips”— microfluidic devices lined by living human cells created with...

    Abstract: Multicellular organisms develop by way of a lineage tree, a series of cell divisions that give rise to cell types, tissues, and organs. However, our knowledge of the cell lineage and its determinants remains extremely fragmentary for nearly all species. This includes all vertebrates and arthropods such as Drosophila, wherein cell lineage varies between individuals; embryos and organs.
