Binil Starly is an Assistant Professor in the School of Industrial Engineering in the College of Engineering at the University of Oklahoma. Binil received his B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Kerala, India, and his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA in 2006. Binil joined OU in the Fall term of 2006.
His research and education interests include Computer-Aided Tissue Engineering, Biomechanical Engineering, Design and Manufacturing, CAD/CAE, Solid Freeform Fabrication, Tissue-on-chip systems,Embedded biosensors.
Binil has published over 10 journal publications in the field of scaffold design and fabrication for tissue engineering applications. He is currently the faculty advisor for the Laboratory for Engineering Living Tissue Systems engaged in the design, analysis and fabrication of three dimensional (3D) tissue constructs for applications in tissue engineering, regenerative medicine and drug screening studies. Research activities currently focus on the development of advanced software and optimization algorithms capable of designing heterogeneous tissue structures. This research lab will house advanced CAD/CAE software, in-house developed algorithms, fiber optic biosensors, hybrid bio-manufacturing equipment (UV Photopolymerization, Droplet Deposition, Electro-Spinning) in an attempt to create better and efficient designs of tissue scaffolds/constructs.
My research encompasses a variety of areas including CAD/CAE/CAM Applications, Tissue Construct Design and Fabrication, Heterogeneous 3D Tissue Structures, Tissue-on-Chip Devices, Real Time Tissue Construct Informatics, and Biometrology.
