Dr. Ramille Shah is Assistant Professor of Materials Science & Engineering in the McCormick School of Engineering at Northwestern University. There, she is also Assistant Professor of Surgery in the Feinberg School of Medicine and a resident faculty member in the Simpson Querrey Institute for BioNanotechnology.

An accomplished researcher, Shah has particular interest in the development of new 3D printable functional materials for biomedical and non-biomedical applications, complex tissue and organ engineering, self-assembling biomaterials, mechanical stimulation of cells in scaffolding systems.

Shah is also Principal Investigator at the Shah Tissue Engineering and Additive Manufacturing (TEAM) Lab, a leader in the new and developing field of “3D-Printable Materials Development and Characterization”. The group develops novel processes for engineering new 3D-inks that greatly expand the variety of materials that are compatible with the additive manufacturing technique of direct ink writing.

Shah earned a Ph.D. in Biomaterials from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where she also minored in Business/Management for Biotech/Biomedical Industries. Earlier, she graduated cum laude with B.S. degree in Materials Science and Engineering (Specialization in Biomaterials) from Northwestern University.

Over the course of her career, Shah is credited with numerous research publications, given more than 100 scientific lectures and presentations and been widely covered in the media. She also holds several patents and invention disclosures.
