Barbara D. Boyan, currently the associate dean for research in Georgia Tech's College of Engineering and the Price Gilbert, Jr. Chair in Tissue Engineering at Georgia Tech, as well as a professor in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University, has been named as the new dean of the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Engineering. 

Boyan's new position will be effective Jan. 1, 2013.  She will be working with faculty, staff, students and administrators during the fall semester, however, to ensure a successful ABET accreditation site visit and forward progress on a strategic vision for the School of Engineering.

"Under Barbara's leadership as our associate dean for research and innovation, the College of Engineering has made extraordinary progress in the areas of collaborative research with Emory University, Children's Healthcare, industry, and other partners,” said Gary S. May, dean of the College of Engineering at Georgia Tech.  “She has brought a cutting edge vision to biomedical research and translational research especially in the areas of pediatric devices and regenerative medicine."

Boyan is a Fellow in the American Association for the Advancement of Science and in the American Institute of Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering.  In 2012, she was elected to the National Academy of Engineering, and just this past June inducted into the Fellows of the World Congress of Biomaterials. Boyan is also the recipient of numerous awards, the author of more than 370 peer-reviewed papers, reviews, and book chapters and holds 14 U.S. patents.  She received her B.A., M.A. and Ph.D. in biology from Rice University.
