Dileep Monie is a teaching fellow for 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 and instructed undergraduate biomedical engineering concentrators enrolled in Supervised Reading & Research and Engineering Design Projects.
Dileep earned his bachelor's degree from Harvard in 2015. His senior thesis focused on 3D bioprinting of human organs-on-chips, offering technological advances that may facilitate drug development for precision medicine. 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.
Currently, Dileep is continuing his training as a physician-scientist (MD-PhD) at the Mayo Clinic Medical Scientist Training Program. His research interests span systems immunology, regenerative bioengineering, and neuro-oncology. In the laboratory, he is designing synthetic viral and cellular immunotherapies for cancer and infectious disease patients. He is also an advocate for citizen science—promoting the democratization of biology as a founding board member of the Baltimore Under Ground Science Space.
