Helena de Puig: Postdoc in the Collins lab at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, Harvard University. I use and edit Nature's toolbox of proteins/DNA and materials to give new capabilities to materials, cells, proteins and to lower the cost of healthcare.
I studied Industrial Engineering in Institut Químic de Sarrià (IQS), Ramon Llull University in Barcelona, Spain. After graduation, studied a S.M. at MIT (thesis), with mentorship from Dr. Kimberly Hamad-Schifferli. I then obtained a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at MIT (thesis), in the laboratory of Prof. Lee Gehrke where I developed nanoparticle-assisted detection methods to diagnose tropical diseases, such as dengue, zika, or ebola.
I now work at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University on many collaborative efforts. Check out the latest publications tab for updates.
