Reader in Biomaterials and Interface Science

Loughborough University

Biography

Paul Roach has a formal education in fundamental Chemistry, although has always driven multidisciplinary research and is particularly recognised for his work on advanced materials, interface science, nano-bio-interactions, and micro-fabrication. His overall research aim is to combine his knowledge of chemical and bio-surface engineering, and development of novel instrumentation, to revolutionise materials/ devices used in healthcare. More recently he has focussed on neural tissue fabrication in vitro, using microfluidic, 3D printing and surface chemical patterning technologies to construct living functional tissues and biological circuits using neurons – This work has been funded by EPSRC and EU Horizon 2020 under a Future Emerging Technologies award, “NEU-CHiP”.
