Alice A. Chen has received the prestigious 2011 $30,000 Lemelson-MIT Student Prize for innovative applications of microtechnology and biomedical engineering to study human health and disease. Her ability to connect the dots in disparate fields led Chen to the development of a humanized mouse with a tissue-engineered human liver, designed to bridge a gap between laboratory animal studies and clinical trials.
