Principal Investigator


Dr. Jessica Weaver received her PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Miami. She completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where she was supported by the NIH ILET2 training grant and a JDRF Postdoctoral Fellowship. As an Assistant Professor in the School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering at Arizona State University, Dr. Weaver’s research centers on developing translatable cell-based therapies for the treatment of disease, with a focus on islet transplantation for the treatment of Type 1 Diabetes. The Weaver lab uses biomaterials and immunoengineering approaches with the aim to generate immunosuppression-free transplantation strategies. The Weaver lab is supported by the JDRF New Innovator Award, the Arizona Biomedical Research Commission New Investigator Award, the NIDDK, NIAID, and the Office of the NIH Director New Innovator Award.
