Dr. Ali Khademhosseini of the Terasaki Institute for Biomedical Innovation (TIBI) has been awarded a fellowship from the International Association of Advanced Materials (IAAM), for him and his team’s groundbreaking work in precision medicine and the facilitation of its real-world applications in the public health field. He has most notably led the effort in tissue engineering, developing smart devices and materials for diagnostics and therapeutic drug delivery, and perfecting 3D-printed architectures of personalized surgical implants for patients in need. He is distinguished among the brightest and most impactful scientists for his commitment to assure and distribute his knowledge and methods of personalized health to as many people in need as possible.
The International Association of Advanced Materials (IAAM) is a prestigious publishing house of the latest and best scientific research and news in the interdisciplinary fields of materials science. As an organization, they are committed to the rigorous discovery and widespread dissemination of cutting-edge work that benefits the world. They also aim to educate as many people as possible; this is their motivation for awarding fellowships to materials scientists like Dr. Khademhosseini, to highlight the ways they are innovating methods of using and sharing materials that can elevate communities everywhere.
Dr. Khademhosseini brings a wealth of experience as a prominent educator and scientific investigator to his work as leader of the Terasaki Institute. Much of his pioneering work can be traced through his publications on the editorial boards of ACS Nano, Small, RSC Advances, Advanced Healthcare Materials, Biomaterials Science, the Journal of Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine, Biomacromolecules, Reviews on Biomedical Engineering, Biomedical Materials, and the Journal of Biomaterials Science-Polymer Edition and Biofabrication.
He is awarded this IAAM fellowship alongside his longtime fellowships from the American Institute of Medical and Bioengineering (AIMBE), Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES), Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), Biomaterials Science and Engineering (FBSE), Materials Research Society (MRS), NANOSMAT Society, and American Association of Biomedical and Biological Science (AAAS).
