Monica Moya's Biography

Monica Moya, Research Engineer, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

Dr. Monica Moya is a biomedical engineer researcher at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Currently she works as the principal investigator and as a technical lead on two bioengineering projects including 3D bioprinting of human tissues. She received her Bachelors of Science from Northwestern University and her Ph.D. in biomedical engineering from Illinois Institute of Technology. She returned to the west coast to do her postdoctoral research at UC Irvine as a National Institutes of Health (NIH) Ruth Kirschstein-NRSA Fellow prior to working at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Her research interests include vascularization strategies, biomaterials, tissue engineering, and the development of 3D microphysiological systems.

Essential to human organ function and survival is a microcirculation. An often oversimplified challenge in creating organ in vitro model systems for drug efficacy and toxicity studies is the development of a vascular supply. The ability to screen chemical toxins to determine the permeability across human capillaries or direct toxicity to the microcirculation is of enormous importance in understanding the integrated effect of an individual toxin. In this work, a direct ink write system is used to print an in vitro model system of human microvessels will be presented.
