Megan L McCain's Biography



Megan L McCain, Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine, University of Southern California

Megan L. McCain, PhD, completed her BS in Biomedical Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis. She earned her PhD in Engineering Sciences under Prof. Kit Parker at Harvard University, where she investigated mechanotransduction in engineered models of cardiac development and disease. Megan continued as a post-doctoral researcher at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University, where she helped develop micro-scale mimics of human cardiac tissue, known as “Heart on a Chip”. In 2014, Megan joined the University of Southern California as the Gabilan Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering. She also holds an appointment in the Department of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine. Her research group, the Laboratory for Living Systems Engineering, is focused on developing and utilizing novel microphysiological systems for human disease modeling, with a focus on striated muscle. Megan was recognized by MIT Technology Review as one of the top 35 Innovators Under 35 for 2014 and was awarded the Scientist Development Grant from the American Heart Association.
