I am Raquel Cunha and I am currently pursuing a PhD in Bioengineering from MIT Portugal Program. The goal of my PhD is to develop clinical grade stem cell-based therapies with enhanced regeneration potential. My project is being developed as collaboration between Karp’s lab and Wyss Institute, Boston, and Instituto Superior Técnico (IST) from University of Lisbon, Portugal. My background is an Integrated Master in Biological Engineering at IST, Portugal. As personal interests, I like hiking, volleyball and travelling.
