Dr. Roger Narayan received his BA in Chemistry, Summa Cum Laude, from North Carolina State University in 1996. He went on to pursue a study of biomaterials at Wake Forest University and North Carolina State University. Dr. Narayan received a MD from the School of Medicine at Wake Forest University in 2001, and a PhD from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at North Carolina State University in 2002. He currently serves as Associate Professor of Biomaterials in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of North Carolina . Dr. Narayan has published over fifty technical papers on pulsed laser deposition, laser direct writing, and two photon-induced polymerization of biomaterials. His current research on laser processing of nanostructured ceramics and laser direct writing of biomaterials is funded by the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and the Office of Naval Research. Dr. Narayan has served as an Office of Naval Research Young Investigator, TMS Young Leader, and Georgia Tech Class of 1969 Teaching Fellow. Dr. Narayan is a member of TMS, Alpha Sigma Mu, and ASM- International.
