Lab Members

The Harvard Biodesign Lab brings together a highly multidisciplinary group of researchers and staff from the engineering, industrial design, apparel and medical communities to develop technologies that augment and restore human performance. In addition to traditional academic research, the lab is also highly translation-focused and has a track record of securing and delivering on large government funded projects (e.g. DARPA Warrior Web) that partially or fully support dedicated staff engineers who are part of the Wyss Institute’s translation team and work directly alongside the academic researchers.
