Gordana Vunjak-Novakovic, PhD is a Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Columbia University, Director of the Laboratory for Stem Cells and Tissue Engineering, and of the Stem Cell Imaging Core. She co-directs the NIH Tissue Engineering Resource Center and Columbia’s Center for Craniofacial Regeneration.

The focus of her research is on engineering functional human tissues using stem cells, biomaterials and bioreactors, for application in regenerative medicine, stem cell research, and the study of tissue development and disease.

She published 2 books, 50 book chapters, and 230 peer-reviewed articles that were cited over 8,000 times. She has 40 patents. Gordana has served as a Distinguished Editor for NIH, scientific advisor for the HHMI, on the Continental Chapter Council of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society, as the chair of the Biomaterials and Biointerfaces study section, and on editorial boards of 10 journals.

In 2002, she was elected a Fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering. In 2007, she gave the Director’ lecture at the NIH; the first woman engineer to receive this distinction. In 2008, she was inducted into the Women in Technology International Hall of Fame “for developing biological substitutes to restore, maintain or improve tissue function”. In 2010, she received the Clemson Award of the Biomaterials Society “for significant contributions to the literature on biomaterials”.
