Dr. Varanasi received his doctorate from the University Of Florida Department Of Chemical Engineering in 2004 and in partnership with the Department of Energy Oak Ridge National Laboratory. He helped to develop new solid oxide electrolytes for fuel cell technology used in green energy power supply for aerospace vehicles and land-based power generation. He then launched his career in biomaterials and bioengineering as a Postdoctoral Scholar at the University of California at San Francisco and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. There, he started his work on developing biogenic materials for use in bone healing. Dr. Varanasi has continued this work as a faculty member at the University of Texas at Arlington. He has published more than 35 peer-reviewed articles, book chapters, patents, and funded on various projects from the Department of Energy, Canadian Nuclear Energy Agency, NSF, NIH, and industry. Dr. Varanasi has collaborated with various researchers including clinicians, scientists, and engineers to further expand biomaterials research for treatment of musculoskeletal injuries.
