Raimondo joins Brown Engineering faculty

Theresa Raimondo has joined the engineering faculty at Brown University as an assistant professor of engineering, with a secondary appointment in the Division of Biology and Medicine. Raimondo’s appointment began on January 1. 

Raimondo comes to Brown from the Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where she has been serving as a postdoctoral researcher in Daniel Anderson’s and Robert Langer’s lab. There, she focused on the development of novel lipid nanoparticles for RNA-based therapies. Her research contributed to the development of adjuvanted mRNA-based vaccines and siRNA-based immunotherapies; a cancer treatment that works by silencing immune checkpoints in tumors.

She received her Ph.D. in Engineering Sciences - bioengineering from Harvard University in 2019 and Sc. B. in Chemical and Biochemical Engineering from Brown University in 2011. Raimondo has been a recipient of several awards, including a 2022 Convergence Scholar fellowship from MIT’s Marble Center for Cancer Nanomedicine, a National Science Foundation graduate fellowship, and Harvard’s Smith family graduate fellowship.
