Murat Cirit's Biography



Murat Cirit, Research Scientist, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

Murat Cirit, PhD, is a Research Scientist at MIT & director of the Translational Systems Pharmacology Team and System Integration Task in the DARPA-PhysioMimetics program (“Human Physiome on a Chip”) led by Linda Griffith. MIT and various institutions collaborate in creating a platform that supports ten interacting micro-physiological systems (MPS) and associated sensors for drug testing. Murat completed his PhD at NCSU focusing on systems biology of growth factor-mediated signal transduction pathways. After completion of his PhD, he worked in the pharmaceutical industry focusing on preclinical drug discovery for oncology. He brings an interdisciplinary and systematic approach through his extensive experimental knowledge and computational modeling with an understanding of biological, physiological, and physical processes. His main research experience is systems pharmacology, systems biology, applied tissue engineering, cell biology and signal transduction networks. His current focus as the scientific lead is integrating various scientific fields to build interacting MPSs by interfacing platform engineering & tissue engineering for pharmacology studies.
