About Eugenia

Eugenia Inda is a Pew Postdoctoral Fellow in the Synthetic Biology Center at MIT. She is building biosensors to diagnose and treat inflammatory disorders in the gut, such as inflammatory bowel disease and celiac disease. Specifically, she is equipping the bacteria dwelling in the intestines with sensors to recognize the molecular markers of inflammation and command them as sentinels to patrol the gut and secrete therapeutic molecules in situ. Besides, Eugenia is thrilled to serve as an MIT-Comm Lab advisor using her prowess to help students show the value of their ideas and push their scientific career forward. Outside her research, she loves capturing the beauty of everyday life with her Nikon D3400 camera.
