Shuvo Roy, PhD, Professor, Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences, UC San Francisco. Dr. Roy focuses his research on the development of biomedical devices to address unmet clinical needs through the application of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) and related nanotechnology. He is the director of the Biodesign Laboratory and is a faculty affiliate of the California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences (QB3). His research focuses on fabrication of silicon membranes for biofiltration and organ replacement functions, surface modification of MEMS substrates to enhance device biocompatibility, and wireless sensors for physiological monitoring. He is the technical director of The Kidney Project, a national research project to create a small, surgically implanted, and free-standing bioartificial kidney to treat end stage renal disease (ESRD). In addition, he is a founding member of the UCSF Pediatric Device Consortium, which has a mission to accelerate the development of innovative devices for children’s health. Before joining UC San Francisco in 2008, Dr. Roy co-directed the BioMEMS Laboratory in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. He has a PhD in electrical engineering and computer science from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.
In 1992 he earned a BS degree, Magna Cum Laude, with General Honors for triple majors in Physics, Mathematics (Special Honors), and Computer Science from Mount Union College in Alliance, Ohio. In 1995, he earned an MS in Electrical Engineering and Applied Physics and, in 2001, a PhD degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, both from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.
Dr. Roy has contributed more than 85 technical publications, co-authored 3 book chapters, been awarded 16 US patents, and given more than 60 invited presentations. He is the recipient of a Top 40 under 40 award by Crain’s Cleveland Business in 1999 and the Clinical Translation Award at the 2nd Annual BioMEMS and Biomedical Nanotechnology World 2001 meeting. In 2003, Dr. Roy was selected as a recipient of the TR100, which features the world’s 100 Top Young Innovators as selected by Technology Review, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Magazine of Innovation. In 2004, he was presented with a NASA Group Achievement Award for his work on harsh environment MEMS. In 2005, Dr. Roy was named as a Who’s Who in Biotechnology by Crain’s Cleveland Business. In 2005 and 2007, he was recognized as a Cleveland Clinic Innovator. In 2009, he was nominated for the Biotechnology Industry Organization's Biotech Humanitarian Award, which is given in recognition of an individual who has used biotechnology to unlock its potential to improve the earth.
