Roger Wartell was born in New York, New York. He received his B.S. degree in Physics from Stevens Institute of Technology in 1966. In 1971 he received his Ph.D in Physics from the University of Rochester where he worked in the group of Elliott Waters Montroll on the DNA helix-coil transition. From 1971-1973 he was a NIH postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Robert Wells at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He was a Visiting Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1978-1979, and Visiting Scholar at National Institutes of Health-Bethesda from 1987-1988.
Wartell joined the faculty at Georgia Tech in 1974, and received a NIH Career Development Award in 1979. He served as Associate Chair of the Georgia Institute of Technology School of Physics from 1987-1988. With a 1/3 joint appointment in Biology, he was appointed Acting Chair of the Georgia Tech School of Biology in 1990. Under his tenure as Chair,(1990-2004), the undergraduate curriculum was revised to provide students with three areas of emphasis: environmental biology, microbiology, and molecular biology and faculty size increased from 12 to 26. The areas reflected the research and educational interests of the faculty.
