Professional Biography

After 17 years of service at the South India Textile Research Association (SITRA), India, Rajendran (Raj) moved to the University of Bolton, UK in 1998. Since then he has been actively involved in Healthcare & Biomedical Textile Devices research, teaching and consultancy assignments at the Institute for Materials Research and Innovation. He has been actively involved in R&D for 34 years and has successfully completed a number of research projects in the past funded by companies and government funding agencies. Raj has so far authored 152 research papers which include 4 books, 7 monographs, 14 book chapters and 8 patents. An interdisciplinary book entitled ‘Advanced Textiles for Wound Care’, edited by him has received a greater attention among readers and its second volume is under production.

Rajendran is a Fellow of the Textile Institute (TI) and a member of Council and is currently Chairman of Professional Qualifications Committee of the TI which is a century old Royal Charted institute in Manchester, UK. He is the recipient of a prestigious Research Fellowship award from the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO). 

Current research interests:

Healthcare and Textile based biomedical Devices, Smart Materials and Polymer Modification of Textile Substrates.
