Ashleigh Theberge

Ashleigh Theberge has been selected as a 2021 Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellow in Chemistry. These two-year, $75,000 fellowships are awarded yearly to 126 researchers in recognition of distinguished performance and a unique potential to make substantial contributions to their field.

The Theberge group studies chemical mechanisms underlying inflammation and disease. They develop analytical chemistry tools to advance medicine, including microfluidic systems for cell culture and portable self-administered blood and environmental sampling systems to study the human immune response anytime, anywhere. They collaborate closely with clinicians to better understand how chemical processes are linked to patient symptoms.
