Jennifer A. Lewis is the Hansjörg Wyss Professor of Biologically Inspired Engineering at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and a core faculty member of the Wyss Institute at Harvard University. Her research focuses on 3D printing of soft and living matter across multiple scales.
She has made pioneering contributions to the programmable assembly of soft functional, structural, and biological materials. These novel architected materials may find potential application in printed electronics, optical and structural metamaterials, soft robotics, and 3D vascularised tissues and organs. Her work on microscale 3D printing was highlighted as one of the “10 Breakthrough Technologies” by the MIT Technology Review, while her bioprinting research was named “one of the top 100 science stories” by Discover Magazine.
