Lisa A. Marcaurelle is a chemist and a senior executive in multiple biotechnology companies.

Education[edit]

Marcaurelle received her B.A. in Chemistry from the College of the Holy Cross in 1997, where she worked with Prof. Timothy Curran on dipeptide scaffolds. She enrolled in UC-Berkeley to pursue a Ph.D. in Chemistry under Carolyn Bertozzi, working on a variety of new glycoside-linking technologies to produce glycoprotein mimetics for natural substances like mucin.[1] Marcaurelle completed a one-year postdoctoral fellowship at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, working with Peter Seeberger on solid-phase synthesis of oligosaccharides.

Career[edit]

Marcaurelle worked at Infinity Pharmaceuticals and the Broad Institute for a combined 9 years, working in high-throughput chemistry, diversity-oriented chemical synthesis, chemical biology, and medicinal chemistry projects. She was recruited as a Vice President at H3 Biomedicine in 2011.[2] At H3, Marcaurelle instituted and continued to develop a diversity-oriented synthesis platform, based on newly-evolving chemotypes such as spirocycles and macrocycles. In 2016, she became Senior Director of Chemistry at Warp Drive Bio, and in 2018 Vice President of Enko Chem, a venture-backed crop protection start-up in the Boston area.[3]

Marcaurelle remains active in professional society volunteering and mentorship of younger scientists in the pharmaceutical industry, and actively advocates for the inclusion of women scientists in leadership roles.[4]
