Dileep Monie is a teaching fellow for online bioengineering courses at the Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences. He lectures in Biomedical Product Development, Biochemical Engineering and Synthetic Life, Acceptance and Resistance to Innovation, and Tissue Engineering for Clinical Applications. He has also mentored undergraduate biomedical engineering concentrators on campus for their senior design projects. During the COVID-19 pandemic, he provided guidance to Harvard FAS faculty as they transitioned to the virtual classroom.
Dileep earned his bachelor's degree from Harvard University in 2015. His senior thesis on 3D bioprinted human organs-on-chips yielded technological advances that may facilitate development of precision medicines. During this period, he conducted research at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, and Massachusetts General Hospital.
Concurrently, Dileep is an MD-PhD candidate at the Mayo Clinic Medical Scientist Training Program, where he served as the student government president and was awarded an NIH Kirschstein-NRSA F30 fellowship from the National Cancer Institute. This education has been complemented with graduate training in artificial intelligence at Stanford University. His research interests span systems immunology, synthetic biology, and regenerative medicine, with a clinical focus on surgical neuro-oncology. He is also an advocate for citizen science and the democratization of biology, having served as a founding board member of the Baltimore Under Ground Science Space.
