Lisa Freed

Biomechatronics
  • Research Scientist

I received my education at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT SB’82, SM’82, and PhD’88 - Department of Applied Biological Sciences) and Harvard Medical School (HMS MD’88 - Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology). I am a Research Scientist and my work focuses on biomaterials, biomedical engineering, tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, and rehabilitative medicine. While a member of Bob Langer’s group at MIT (1990 to 2017), my work focused on preclinical studies of biomaterials, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine, and I led grants in those areas under NASA and NIH sponsorship. As a member of Hugh Herr's group at MIT (2017-present), I work on clinical trials of novel biomimetic interfaces designed to help persons with limb amputations improve their capabilities for phantom limb proprioception and prosthetic motor control. One of our trials is described on the public website clinicaltrials.gov NCT03913273. I also serve as a faculty mentor for IMPACT, an MIT mentoring program for pre- and postdoctoral fellows who seek to improve their ability to explain their research to diverse audiences and defend its real-world impact.
