enowned faculty and experiencing its stimulating environment," Khademhosseini said.

Through his research, Khademhosseini has developed technologies at the micro- and nano- scale that enable generation of tissue engineered organs and control of cell behavior. His novel, modular approach to tissue engineering treats cells like "living Legos" and uses tissue building blocks from specialized cells that are stacked, shaped and manipulated to form an organ. By giving cells within the organ the same interconnections they have in the body, Khademhosseini hopes to create tissues that can be used to test new drugs and, eventually, to rebuild organs.

During his appointment at the BME Department, Khademhosseini will perform collaborative research with UT Austin faculty on merging microfabrication techniques and biomaterials for regenerative medicine and drug discovery applications.

"Ali is a bright star in bioengineering. He is one of the most imaginative and innovative young biomaterials and biomedical scientists," said Nicholas A. Peppas, chair of the BME Department. "Ali's contributions will have major impact in medical research. We are looking forward to collaborating with him and undertaking novel research and educational projects."

Khademhosseini received his Ph.D. in bioengineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and his M.S. and B.S. degrees both in chemical engineering from the University of Toronto in Canada.

Khademhosseini holds many awards and distinctions, including the young investigator awards in the fields of chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, tissue engineering and biomaterials science. Others include: a 2011 Sloan Fellowship, the Society for Biomaterials Young Investigator Award, the American Institute of Chemical Engineers A. P. Colburn Award, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers Y.C. Fung Young Investigator Award, the TERMIS (Tissue Engineering)-North Americ
