Dr. Roger Narayan is a Professor in the Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of North Carolina and North Carolina State University. Since completion of a MD from Wake Forest University and a PhD in Materials Science & Engineering from North Carolina State University, Dr. Narayan’s research group has examined use of laser-based additive manufacturing techniques, including laser direct writing and two photon polymerization, to process materials with micrometer scale and sub-micrometer scale features for medical applications. He currently serves as an editorial board member for several academic journals, including as editor-in-chief of Materials Science and Engineering C: Materials for Biological Applications. Dr. Narayan has also edited several books, including the textbook Biomedical Materials and the handbook Materials for Medical Devices. Dr. Narayan has also pioneered several educational activities at the interface between engineering and medicine, including graduate certificates in nanobiotechnology at the University of North Carolina and North Carolina State University. Dr. Narayan has received several honors for his research activities, including the NCSU Alcoa Foundation Engineering Research Achievement Award, the NCSU Sigma Xi Faculty Research Award, the University of North Carolina Jefferson-Pilot Fellowship in Academic Medicine, the National Science Faculty Early Career Development Award, the Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Award, and the American Ceramic Society Richard M. Fulrath Award. He has been elected as Fellow of ASM International, AAAS, and AIMBE. He was also recently selected as an ASME America Makes Fellow.
