2020 Fellow

Andrea d’Aquino

PhD Institution
Northwestern University

Andrea develops synthetic molecules that can assemble into structures that resemble the behavior of natural proteins. By mimicking the ability of a protein to adapt its structure and function in response to environmental changes, these synthetic molecules have many potential applications. As a Schmidt Science Fellow, Andrea will pivot into biomedical engineering and aims to develop biomaterials for controlled drug delivery to treat diseases such as diabetes.
