Professors Krishnendu Roy and Johnna Temenoff have won Georgia Tech’s award for Outstanding Achievement in Research Program Development in 2020. They lead the National Science Foundation (NSF) Engineering Research Center for Cell Manufacturing Technologies (CMaT) based at Georgia Tech. The vision of the center is to transform the manufacturing of cell-based therapeutics into a large-scale, lower-cost, reproducible, and high quality engineered process, for broad industry and clinical use. Both are professors in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University, and are researchers in the Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience.
Professor Krishnendu Roy holds the Robert A. Milton Chair and is the director of the NSF Engineering Research Center for Cell Manufacturing Technologies. He is also the director of the Marcus Center for Cell-Therapy Characterization and Manufacturing, and director of the Center for ImmunoEngineering at Georgia Tech.
Professor Johnna Temenoff holds the Carol Ann and David D. Flanagan Professorship and is the deputy director of the NSF Engineering Research Center for Cell Manufacturing Technologies.
She is also the associate chair for translational research in the Coulter Department.
