Academic Biography: One Page Biosketch

Prabhas Moghe is Distinguished Professor of Biomedical Engineering of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering at Rutgers University in New Jersey. 

Dr. Moghe received B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Bombay (UDCT) in 1988, Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering (Specialty: Bioengineering) from the University of Minnesota in 1993, and trained on a postdoctoral fellowship in Bioengineering at Harvard Medical School from 1993 to 1995. Dr. Moghe joined the Rutgers faculty in 1995. 

Dr. Moghe's research leadership roles include: Vice-Chair of Biomedical Engineering, Principal Investigator and Director on the NSF-sponsored IGERT program at Rutgers on Integratively Engineered Biointerfaces (2003-) and Integrated Science & Engineering of Stem Cells (2008-13) and PI/Director of a Nanoscale Interdisciplinary Research Team (NIRT) (2006-2012); Director of Rutgers-UMDNJ Joint Graduate Program in Biomedical Engineering (2007-2010); CORE PI for NIH-sponsored Integrated Research Center on Polymeric Biomaterials (2003-2018); School of Engineering Diversity Champion for the NE-AGEP (2005-). Previously he has served as Undergraduate Program Director in Biomedical Engineering (2000-2002) and Director of the New Jersey Confocal Microscopy and Cell Culture Facility for Biomaterials, first established in 1996. He was appointed as graduate faculty member of the Graduate Program in Cell and Developmental Biology (Molecular Biosciences) at Rutgers in 1998.  Since 2008, Dr. Moghe was appointed as Adjunct Professor of Surgery, Division of Bioengineering, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.
