Mireille Kamariza, PhD

Dr. Mireille Kamariza is a Junior Fellow at the Society of Fellows at Harvard University. With a background in chemical biology, infectious disease research, she researches new tools to selectively probe molecular activity of live cells, in real-time, with versatile applications in research and medicine.

Prior to her appointment at Harvard, she completed her doctoral studies in Biology at Stanford University where she developed a new diagnostic technology for the rapid and simple detection of tuberculosis (TB) at the point-of-care. Her work was translated into a public benefit corporation and, as a co-Founder of OliLux Biosciences, Inc. -- a company dedicated to providing low-cost, portable and reliable diagnostic devices in low-resource settings -- she continues to serve the underserved and underrespresented populations. She also hold a masters degree from the University of California, Berkeley in Molecular and Cell Biology and a bachelors degree from the University of California, San Diego in Biochemistry and Chemistry. 

Research themes: Chemical Biology, Infectious Diseases, Global Health, Science & Technology.
