About

Our cross-functional team is built to transform medicine with materials

Arsenal Medical was founded by serial entrepreneur-investor Carmichael Roberts and academic luminaries Robert Langer and George Whitesides, who have revolutionized the fields of drug delivery, biotech, and clean energy. As experts in materials science and chemistry, they created Arsenal with the broad vision to transform medicine with materials.

Led by CEO Upma Sharma, our team includes a wide range of experts in material science, chemical, mechanical, and biomedical engineering, and clinical and regulatory affairs. Together, we meet the challenges of developing innovative biomaterials and their enabling devices.

Arsenal’s work has been recognized in 12 peer-reviewed papers, 14 national meeting presentations, and 38 issued patents. We have secured over $100M from both non-dilutive sources and venture capital. Our $85M in non-dilutive funding comes from a diverse group of partners, including the Department of Defense, DARPA, NIH (both National Cancer Institute and National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute), and Massachusetts Life Sciences Center.
