Society For Biomaterials Announces 2020 Award Recipients

SFB recognizes Society members with prestigious industry awards for outstanding achievements and contributions to the biomaterials field

January 6, 2020 — The U.S. Society For Biomaterials (SFB), a professional society which promotes advances in biomedical materials research and development, will participate in the World Biomaterials Congress in Glasgow, Scotland, May 19-24 at the Scottish Events Campus.

“We are proud to honor these extraordinary members of SFB with these awards,” said Horst von Recum, PhD, president of the U.S. Society For Biomaterials. “Their research truly embodies the intersection of basic and applied research that is the focal point of our society.  SFB continues to be a powerful contributor to the sectors of industry, academia and policy.”

SFB is composed of members who have experience in numerous sectors of the biomaterials field, ranging from clinicians and researchers to medical device manufacturers and students studying biomaterials. During the World Biomaterials Congress in May, SFB will recognize the achievements of several of its members who have made a significant contribution to the biomaterials field.

SFB is proud to present the following awards:

PhD Candidate Category:

  • Erika Cyphert, Case Western Reserve University
  • Jason Guo, Rice University

Masters Category:

  • Aundrya Montgomery, University of Connecticut
  • Tinke DeWitte, Delft University

One of the defining aspects of SFB is its commitment to bridging the gap between academic research and its application within an industry setting to advance the biomaterials field and lead to innovations in research, patient care and policy.

About the Society for Biomaterials

The Society for Biomaterials is a professional society, which promotes advances in biomedical materials research and development by encouragement of cooperative educational programs, clinical applications, and professional standards in the biomaterials field. Biomaterials scientists and engineers study cells, their components, complex tissues and organs and their interactions with natural and synthetic materials and implanted prosthetic devices, as well as develop and characterize the materials used to measure, restore, and improve physiologic function, and enhance survival and quality of life.
