Joanne Pratt Associate Professor of Biological Sciences
Joanne C. Pratt, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Biological Sciences

As a founding faculty member at Olin College of Engineering, my history at the college predates the arrival of the first class of students. Teaching at an undergraduate institute was a dramatic career change from the academic research life that I had known during my years at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and National Jewish Medical Research Center. I now have well over a decade of experience teaching biology courses to engineering students, and I have learned more than I could have imagined from my students. The courses that I regularly teach are the foundational biology class, Designing Better Drugs, which has the theme of applying basic biological knowledge to understand the development of medicines, the advanced biology electives Seminar in Immunology and Emerging Technologies in Cancer Research, and an Entrepreneurial experience class, Products and Markets.
