ACerS Fellow Prashant Kumta has been a pioneer in the use of nanoceramic materials for bone regeneration and to bind and transport proteins and protein-like substances into cells. Kumta, who teaches at both Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh’s Schools of Engineering and Dental Medicine, discusses how his interest in bioglass and bioceramics coincided with the explosion of nanotechology, opening up new opportunities for biocompatible materials that could be slowly absorbed by the body.

    Hello Dr Prashant,

    Your talk on your recent discovery of biodegradable ceramic nanoparticles was very fascinating. I would like to read more about your experiments and findings if they have been published anywhere. Please send me a copy of the same. I am currently working on improving the biocompatibilty of various biomaterials currently used in bone implants, at the Laboratory of Biomaterials at IIT Kanpur.

    Thank you.
    Parnika Agrawal
