• Assistant Professor, Biomedical Engineering
Shreya Raghavan

Educational Background

  • Ph.D., Biomedical Engineering, Virginia Tech-Wake Forest University School of Biomedical Engineering and Sciences, Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine – 2014

Research Interests

  • Areas of interest: Cancer tissue engineering, immunology, mechanobiology, stem cells, biomaterials

    The Raghavan Lab at Texas A&M builds engineered micro-tissues and micro-environments to study how stem cells and immune cells interact and lead to cancer spread or regenerative healing. Of note, the lab studies how cancers evade immune detection by using the architecture or mechanics of tissues in the body. Her approaches integrate mechanobiology, biomaterials and microenvironment engineering to ask questions that intersect the stem cell/immune axis. The Raghavan lab is funded by the NIH/NCI through an R37 MERIT award, the Department of Defense, and the state cancer agency, Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas.
