N.C. A&T Graduate Student Co-authors Text Book Chapter

Princeton Carter, a graduate student in the chemical, biological and bioengineering department and Dr. Narayan Bhattari, assistant professor of bioengineering co-authored a book chapter, “Bioscaffolds: Fabrication and Performance,” which appears in “Engineered Biomimicry” (Elsevier Publication 2013).                                            

In the chapter, Carter demonstrates multiple ways to construct three-dimensional (3D) scaffolds essential for regenerative medicine.

Carter holds a bachelor of science in biomedical engineering from the University of Virginia, Charlotteseville, Virginia. His research interest includes the fabrication and characterization of bioscaffolds for tissue engineering applications. He intends to purse a degree in medicine upon graduation.  Bhattarai, assistant professor of bioengineering at N.C. A&T graduated from Tribhuvan University of Nepal with an master of science degree in chemistry. He obtained his doctoral degree in materials engineering from Chonbuk National University, South Korea. His graduate research was on the synthesis and a characterization of biodegradable polymers for biomedical applications.

Prior to joining N.C. A&T, Bhattarai was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Washington, Seattle where his research projects included developing tissue engineering scaffolds and diagnostic nanoparticles for cancer imaging and treatments. Currently, his research and teaching interests are in biomaterials, polymer science, nanomedicine, and tissue engineering.
