Peter Tessier is currently Albert M. Mattocks Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Chemical Engineering, Biointerfaces Institute at the University of Michigan. Previously, he was was the Richard Baruch M.D. Career Development Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering and a member of the Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. He received his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Maine (1998, Valedictorian), and his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Delaware (2003, NASA Graduate Fellow). Tessier performed his postdoctoral studies at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research at MIT (2003-2007, American Cancer Society Fellow).
Tessier’s research focuses on designing, developing and optimizing a class of large therapeutic proteins (antibodies) that hold great potential for detecting and treating human disorders ranging from cancer to Alzheimer’s disease. He has received a number of awards in recognition of his pioneering work, including a Humboldt Fellowship for Experienced Researchers (2014-2015), a Young Scientist Award from the World Economic Forum (2014), a Biochemical Engineering Journal Young Investigator Award (2016), a Young Investigator Award from the Biochemical Technology division of the American Chemical Society (2015), a Pew Scholar Award in Biomedical Sciences (2010-2014), a National Science Foundation CAREER Award (2010-2015), a Rensselaer Early Career Award (2012), and Rensselaer School of Engineering Research (2012) and Teaching (2013) Awards.
