Please welcome our new faculty member, Professor Aaron Meyer, to the Department of Bioengineering at UCLA. As a former Bruin, Dr. Meyer received his B.S. in Bioengineering from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2009. Shortly after obtaining his B.S., Dr. Meyer went to obtain his Ph.D. in Biological Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2014 where he eventually became a Research Fellow at the Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

His awards include the NIH Director’s Early Independence Award, Siebel Scholars award, and a Terri Brodeur Breast Cancer Foundation Fellowship. The Meyer lab focuses on combining experimental and computational techniques to reverse engineer cancer and innate immune signaling, with the goal of designing immune- and cancer-targeted therapies.
