Draper Laboratory promoted Jeffrey Borenstein, a senior biomedical engineer, to Laboratory Technical Staff— the top engineering designation at Draper.
Jeffrey BorensteinBorenstein is Draper’s principal investigator of three NIH grants on artificial organs and drug delivery devices, and lead for the Draper engineering contract on a joint program with MIT aimed at creating a human “physiome on a chip.” The project aims to develop a system for testing the safety and efficacy of drugs using human cells on a platform of miniature interacting organ models. He also holds several fundamental patents on use of MEMS technology to build artificial organs.
Borenstein has worked for Draper for 19 years. For the last 10 years he has worked in biomedical engineering. Borenstein began his career at Draper as a fabrication manager, working on micro-electromechanical systems. After six years as manager, he spent two years as group leader in the MEMS program.
In his time at Draper, he has mentored numerous fellows and young engineers, and received multiple awards including the Distinguished Performance Award in 2001, the Best Publication Award in 2004, and was a member of the research group that won the team Distinguished Performance Award in 2012.
Draper’s Laboratory Technical Staff members contribute to strategic planning, mentor other engineers, provide technical guidance to shape or redirect programs inside and outside the Lab, and hold national recognition on a national advisory board and/or customer program offices.
