Marinna co-founded Cellino while finishing her PhD in Applied Physics at Harvard University. During her PhD, she developed expertise in cell biology, laser optics, and an array of nanofabrication processes, including photolithography, metal deposition, self-assembly, and template-stripping. She is a co-inventor of several laser-activated intracellular delivery techniques. Before her PhD, Marinna attended Riverside Community College, received a BS in Biophysics from UCLA, and an AM in Applied Physics from Harvard University. In addition to applying physics to complex unsolved problems in biology, Marinna is passionate about increasing diversity in STEM.
