Mark A. Skylar-Scott
School of Engineering and Applied Sciences

Mark Skylar-Scott is a research fellow in Jennifer Lewis' group in the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University. His research focuses on the development of new methods for biomanufacturing of therapeutic-scale, vascularized tissues, and the design of new 3D printing hardware to enable high throughput manufacturing in IRG 2. Mark spearheaded the acquisition of the shared Envisiontec Aureus 3D printers and assists with user training. He received his Ph.D. in Medical and Electrical Engineering from the department of Health Science and Technology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, with a focus on high resolution multiphoton microfabrication of capillary networks. This fall, he aims to apply for faculty positions at a research-focused university to pursue methods for biomanufacturing therapeutic scale organs.
