Dr. Natalie Artzi is a Professor at Harvard Medical School and a researcher at the Harvard-MIT Division for Health Sciences and Technology. Dr. Artzi pioneered basic understanding of tissue: biomaterial interactions and concepts learned have changed the way we view materials. Materials and devices are now being ‘personalized’ by considering specific tissue microenvironments that are altered in the face of disease. Her multidisciplinary team works on developing materials for diagnosis and therapy, and exploit the toolkit available for material scientists to create multifaceted medical devices.
