Pranjali Beri is a Ph.D. candidate at UC San Diego in the department of Bioengineering. Pranjali received her B.S. in Bioengineering at UC Berkeley, graduating with high honors. As one of the senior graduate students in the lab of Dr. Adam Engler, she has excelled as a researcher and scholar. Her Ph.D. research focuses on utilizing adhesion strength of cancer cells to the extracellular matrix (ECM) as a potential biophysical marker for metastatic ability. She has accumulated a solid publication record at UC San Diego and has been the driving force behind our new efforts in cancer mechanobiology. She has been involved in the larger Bioengineering community, such as mentoring under-represented summer undergraduate students in the REU and STARS programs.
