Dr. Megan N. McClean
Dr. Megan N. McClean is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She received her B.A. from the University of California-Berkeley and her Ph.D. from Harvard University, both in Applied Mathematics. During her thesis work with Dr. Sharad Ramanathan, she used computational modeling in combination with single-cell microscopy to understand the mechanisms of crosstalk prevention and signaling specificity in Saccharomyces cerevisiae MAP kinase pathways. Prior to joining UW-Madison, Dr. McClean was a Lewis-Sigler Fellow at Princeton University where she utilized optogenetics, control theory, and synthetic biology to develop tools for controlling biological circuits. At UW-Madison, Dr. McClean’s research group employs systems and synthetic biology approaches to understand biological signal processing in fungi, including human fungal pathogens, with implications for improving treatment strategies. Dr. McClean holds a Career Award at the Scientific Interface from the Burroughs Wellcome Fund and a Maximizing Investigators’ Research Award from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences.
