Event Details

Commemorating its first anniversary, the Boston chapter of Spanish Scientists in the USA (ECUSA, Españoles Científicos en Estados Unidos), in collaboration with MIT-Spain, is pleased to invite you to this free public program featuring introductory remarks overviewing ECUSA-Boston's achievement during this past year followed by an interactive presentation by Mercedes Balcells, PhD, scientist at MIT Institute for Medical Engineering and Science and co-director of MIT-Spain. The event will conclude with a networking reception. Mercedes will share with us how her studies in basic science have enabled her to (1) promote fruitful collaborations between industry and academia, (2) create a start-up, and (3) establish international exchange programs such as the MIT-Spain Program.

Registration is required. Please click "RSVP" (above) to sign up. The program will be in English and refreshments will be served.

We look forward to seeing you!

The ECUSA-Boston Team.


Mercedes Balcells, PhD

Scientist, MIT Institute for Medical Engineering and Science; Co-director MIT-Spain

Mercedes Balcells earned her PhD in macromolecular chemistry from RWTH Aachen University, Germany. Thereafter, at MIT Mercedes pursued biomedical engineering research at the Harvard-MIT Biomedical Engineering Center, co-created the MIT-Spain Program and founded Regenear, a company that seeks to develop tissue-engineered cartilage to repair genetic facial malformations or accidental injuries. Mercedes's research focuses on understanding the role played by endothelial cells, a single cell layer that lines all blood vessel, in dictating health or disease states.
