In Memoriam

Roger Marchant, PhD, Professor of Biomedical Engineering, passed away on January 31, 2014. Roger was a valued colleague, a world renowned scientist, an outstanding mentor to 27 PhD students and more than 50 undergraduate students, and a skilled and popular teacher. He filled numerous leadership roles at Case and on the national scene across his career, and the excellent biomaterials program in BME resulted in no small part from his guidance and efforts over many years. Roger will be sorely missed.

Roger's obituary is below, including  a link to a site where you can write in a guestbook and find directions to the services. Roger's family has asked that any donations be made to a fund that will establish a lectureship in biomaterials in his memory - information regarding this is included in his obituary.
