Paul Warren, Ph.D.

Graduate Student Researcher
Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering
North Carolina State University & University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill


Paul began working on his PhD at NC State in August 2014. His main research goal is to develop a novel 3D printing-based scaffold fabrication system in order to create engineered tissue constructs for regenerative medicine applications. When not in lab, Paul enjoys basketball, carpool karaoke, and continuously honing his lab competition skills.
