Dr. Roger Narayan is a Professor in the Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of North Carolina and North Carolina State University. He is an author of over one hundred publications as well as several book chapters on nanoscale and microscale processing, characterization, and modeling of biological and biomedical materials. 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 (Elsevier). Dr. Narayan has also edited several books, including Biomedical Materials (Springer), Printed Biomaterials: Novel Processing and Modeling Techniques for Medicine and Surgery (Springer), Advances in Biomedical and Biomimetic Materials (Wiley), and Advances in Bioceramics and Porous Ceramics (Wiley). In addition, he has served as chair of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society Biomaterials Committee and as editorial committee chair of Materials and Processes for Medical Devices (ASM International). He has organized workshops and symposia for the American Ceramic Society, the Society for Biomaterials, and the Materials Research Society. 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 University of North Carolina Junior Faculty Development Award, the National Science Faculty Early Career Development Award, the Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Award, the American Ceramic Society Global Star Award, the American Ceramic Society Richard M. Fulrath Award, and The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society Structural Materials Division JOM Best Paper Award. He has been elected as Fellow of ASM International and Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
