Megan Sperry received her B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Boston University (2012) and M.Phil from Imperial College London (2014). She received her Ph.D. in Bioengineering from the University of Pennsylvania (2019).

Megan Sperry is a Research Fellow at the Wyss Institute at Harvard University and the Allen Discovery Center at Tufts University. Her doctoral work focused on the peripheral and central nervous system mechanisms of persistent temporomandibular pain, using complex network analysis to model changes in brain function. Since joining the Wyss Institute and Levin Lab in 2019, her work has focused on therapeutics development across multiple translational research programs, using a combination of computational and whole-organism screening approaches. Currently, she is involved in a DARPA-funded effort to develop therapeutics that modulate cellular metabolism for tissue preservation, as well as an NIH F32 project examining cellular timekeeping during tissue growth and repair.
