ACerS Bioceramics Division

Mission Statement


Our Mission: The Bioceramics Division of The American Ceramic Society is dedicated to stimulate the growth and activity of the Society, particularly in the areas of the science, engineering, and manufacturing of bioceramics, biocomposites, and biomaterials.





Publication Highlights 

As a service to the members of the Bioceramics Division and those interested in joining The American Ceramic Society, ACerS and Wiley are providing free access to articles published in the Journal of the American Ceramic Society, International Journal of Applied Glass Science and the International Journal of Applied Ceramic Technology that are relevant to the bioceramics industry. These articles were unlocked until December 31, 2017.  ACerS members can access these articles by logging in to www.ceramics.org.

DVD Courses

Bioceramics: Advances and Challenges for Affordable Healthcare Short Course on DVD

Taught by the late Dr. Larry Hench, the course features five lectures that discuss the ethical and technical challenges facing affordable healthcare in the 21st century with an emphasis on the evolution and clinical applications of bioactive ceramic materials. Review the four-course series.


Surface Chemistry & Characterization of Bioactive Glasses

Gain an in-depth view of the mechanisms behind this revolutionary science in this second DVD series by the late Dr. Larry Hench—leading bioglass researcher, industry expert, and thought leader. This nine-lecture short course provides detailed insight into the discovery of bioactive materials, with reviews of animal models and clinical applications. Additionally, obtain an overview of the mechanisms and technology behind bioglass bonding, toxicology and biocompatibility, with a particular emphasis on characterization strategies and how to determine the best method of quality assurance.
