Professor Mohan Edirisinghe FREng holds the established Bonfield Chair of Biomaterials in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at University College London (UCL) and has served as a University of London professor for over 15 years. He was appointed to this UCL chair in December 2005 and prior to this he was Professor of Materials at Queen Mary University of London. He has actively pursued advanced materials processing, forming and manufacturing research, for over 25 years publishing over 350 journal papers with a H-index of over 40 (Web of Science). In addition, his research has led to many inventions and patents and he has also delivered over a 100 keynote/invited lectures at many different international conferences and meetings worldwide (three times in the USA in 2015-16). He has supervised over a 100 researchers, graduating over 50 doctoral students (26 to date at UCL), and has been awarded grants to the value of over £20 million, with 36 UK Research Council grants including two Platform Grants which have given him the opportunity to adventurously explore novel avenues of forming advanced materials for application in key areas such as healthcare. His research has won many prizes including the Royal Society Brian Mercer (Innovation) Feasibility Award an unprecedated three times (2005, 2009 and 2013), the 2010 Worshipful Company of Armourers and Brasiers Materials Science Venture Prize and the 2012 Presidents Prize of the UK Biomaterials Society to recognize outstanding contributions to the biomaterials field.
