Susmita Bose is a Professor, School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering, and an affiliate professor of Chemistry at Washington State University. Prof. Bose has interdisciplinary research interests in the areas of chemistry, materials science and engineering, bioengineering and biology, towards bone scaffolds, surface modified implants and drug delivery applications.
Dr. Bose received the prestigious Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE, the award is given by the US President at the White House in Washington, D.C.) in 2004 from the NSF. Dr. Bose was named as a “Kavli fellow” by the National Academy of Sciences. In 2009, she received the prestigious Schwartzwalder-Professional Achievement in Ceramic Engineering (PACE) and in 2014 Richard M. Fulrath Awards from The American Ceramic Society.
Dr. Bose is an editorial board member for several international journals including Acta Biomaterialia, Journal of the American Ceramic Society (AE), and Additive Manufacturing. In 2008 and 2014 she served as a Visiting Professor at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University, Cambridge, MA. She has supervised over 30 graduate students for their MS and Ph.D. degrees in various disciplines who are currently in academia, national lab and industries. She has published over 200 technical papers.
Dr. Bose’s group research on 3D printed ceramic bone tissue engineering scaffolds with controlled chemistry was featured by the AP, BBC, NPR, CBS News, MSNBC, ABC News, and many other TV, radio stations, magazines and news sites all over the world. She has been actively engaged in outreach activities through demonstrations to the local school students and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education for the last decade. In 2013, Dr. Bose was named a Fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) and The American Ceramic Society.
