Binil Starly joined NC State in August 2013 as a Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program cluster hire in Translational Regenerative Medicine. He is a professor in the Edward P. Fitts Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering. Starly also directs the Laboratory for Engineering Biological Tissue Systems, which is engaged in the scale-up automated production of engineered tissue systems for pharmaceutical drug screening, toxicity testing and regenerative medicine applications. Starly’s cluster work will involve building production platforms for engineered biological tissue, leveraging advances in computer-aided tissue scaffold production, bioprinting, intelligent machines, non-invasive sensors and advanced bioreactors to achieve the goal of tissue engineering on-demand.

Starly’s received his bachelor of science in mechanical engineering from the University of Kerala, India, and his Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Drexel University. He later joined the University of Oklahoma to develop additive manufacturing platforms for tissue engineering. Starly has received the National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development Award for research in multi-scale biological tissue scaffold systems built from additive manufacturing platforms. He has published more than 26 journal articles in the field of design/manufacturing, customized biomedical implants, biofabrication and tissue engineering. For his contributions, he was awarded the 2011 Society of Manufacturing Engineering Young Manufacturing Engineer Award. He has supervised the research of 15 master’s and three Ph.D. students. He teaches undergraduate and graduate courses related to engineering mechanics, digitally enabled design and manufacturing, and regenerative medicine manufacturing.
