Dr. Eric Baer is recognized as one of the most widely known research engineer/scientists in the world in the area of polymeric materials. His pioneering research has served to provide the very foundation for the materials science of polymers. This international recognition stems from his prolific work on solid state structure-property relationships in polymers and their composites.

He has published over 350 research papers, and has edited five technical books, and is currently editor of the most prestigious Journal of Applied Polymer Science, a weekly scientific and engineering publication that is acclaimed to be the most important journal of its type in the polymers and plastics field. Furthermore, he is now recognized as one of the founders of the emerging field of biomimetics.

Dr. Baer emigrated to the United States in 1947, graduating from Baltimore City College two years later.
