Engineer and PhD graduate from ESPCI Paris and UPMC, Laura Magro nurtures a multidisciplinary scientific approach oriented towards societal challenges. Through a specialization in microfluidics, she thrives on projects at the interface of physics, chemistry, and biology during academic and industrial experiments. Her doctoral work, rewarded with a L'Oréal-UNESCO excellence scholarship, focused on developing low-cost medical diagnostic devices tailored to the Guinean context. This expertise in frugal innovation as a means of solidarity has led her to explore the opportunities offered by biomimicry to address current environmental challenges.
