Profile Summary

Dr. Kristen Maitland is a Science Program Lead for Imaging at the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative. The Imaging Program aims to drive the development of new imaging tools and technologies capable of observing biological processes across spatial scales at the level of tissues, cells, and proteins.

Prior to joining CZI, Dr. Maitland was an Associate Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Director of the Microscopy and Imaging Center at Texas A&M University. She was awarded the NSF CAREER Award, the TEES Select Young Faculty Award, and is a Fellow of SPIE and AIMBE. Her research focused on the development of optical instrumentation for improved detection, diagnosis, and treatment of disease.

Dr. Maitland received her B.S. and M.S degrees in Electrical Engineering from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, and Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin as an NSF IGERT Research Fellow. Before joining the faculty at Texas A&M University, she served as Staff Scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
