ACerS is pleased to announce that Steve Jung has been selected for the Volunteer Spotlight program through which we recognize a member who demonstrates outstanding service to The American Ceramic Society through volunteerism.
Jung earned his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. from the Missouri University of Science and Technology while studying ceramic engineering. He has spent the last nine years at Mo-Sci Corporation, now serving as chief technology officer, working on design and development of specialty glass primarily in the healthcare industry for orthopedics and spine, dentistry, wound care, and cancer treatment.
Jung was instrumental in creating ACerS Bioceramics Division and serves as its first Division chair. He also serves as the Manufacturing Division’s vice chair. He participated in the Materials Camp at MS&T, co-chaired the first two Innovations in Bioceramics conferences, was an organizer of ACerS Bioceramics technical interest group, and served on the Du-Co Ceramics scholarship selection committee.
We extend our deep appreciation to Jung for his service to our Society!
