Welcome to the Pratt Laboratory
We are an engineering-driven cancer research laboratory. Our mission is the design of liquid biopsy assays for non-invasive cancer monitoring. We work at the interface of engineering, chemical biology, and oncology.
Prof. Pratt visited the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute to present at the Hale Family Center for Pancreatic Cancer Research. She was invited and hosted by Dr. Stephanie Dougan and Dr. Harshabad Singh.
Prof. Pratt was invited to give a seminar to the Bioengineering Department at Northeastern University. Her talk was entitled “Liquid biopsy approaches in pancreatic cancer”.
Prof. Pratt will co-chair the BMES Annual Meeting Cancer Technologies Track Session entitled “Microengineered Models of Tumor-Stromal Interactions.” The session will be held on October 15th from 3 - 4:30 pm in room 214D at the Henry B Gonzales Convention Center.
The Moorman-Simon Interdisciplinary Career Development Professorship recognizes a faculty member who is conducting truly interdisciplinary work and either holds or has the potential to hold appointments in multiple schools and colleges at BU.
Congratulations to Biomedical Engineering PhD students Maren Eltze and Colin Skeen on passing their oral prelims. Well done!
