Reed Harrison

Reed Harrison received his Bachelors of Science in Biomedical of Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in May 2013. During his Undergraduate education, Reed researched alternative materials for bone cement with a biomimetic and resorbable design.

In Fall of 2013, Reed joined the research group of Professor Dimitrios Morikis to pursue a doctoral degree at the University of California, Riverside. Currently, Reed is researching mechanisms of discrimination between self and non-self in the complement system, a branch of innate immunity. His investigations utilize computational simulations to observe protein dynamics related to immune regulation as well as protein-binding assays to quantify protein interactions. These studies contribute to a mechanistic understanding of complement-mediated disease necessary to engineer new therapeutics.
