Donald Ingber is the Scientific Founder and Chair of the Scientific Advisory Board for Emulate. In addition to his Founding Director role at the Wyss Institute, he is the Judah Folkman Professor of Vascular Biology at Harvard Medical School and Boston Children's Hospital, and Professor of Bioengineering at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
Dr. Ingber is recognized as a pioneer of the emerging field of biologically inspired engineering, and oversees efforts at the Wyss Institute that strive to identify the mechanisms that living organisms use to self-assemble, and to apply these principles to develop advanced materials and devices for healthcare and the environment. He led the Organs-on-Chips development program at the Wyss Institute that resulted in the creation of Emulate’s automated bioemulation platform. Dr. Ingber has also made major contributions to mechanobiology, tissue engineering, tumor angiogenesis, systems biology, and nanobiotechnology.
Dr. Ingber has authored more than 375 publications and 85 patents, and has received numerous honors, including the NC3Rs Annual Award from the National Centre for the Replacement, Refinement, and Reduction of Animals in Research, and both the Leading Edge Award and Honorary Membership from the Society of Toxicology. He is also a member of both the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering and the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies. Ingber received his B.A., M.A., M.Phil., M.D. and Ph.D. from Yale University.
