The membership magazine of The American Ceramic Society
In this issue we look at how ceramics contribute to the modern field of biomaterials. The cover story focuses on the use of additively manufactured ceramic-based biomaterials for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Two feature stories look at detecting sleep disorders with an isoprene sensor/breathalyzer and understanding the mechanism behind bubble formation in glass-ceramics.
Also, see highlights from the 55th annual Refractories Symposium that was hosted by the St. Louis Section and Refractory Ceramics Division in March, and see the latest news for three upcoming spring and summer meetings—ICG, GMFAT-2/Bio-4, and EHS.
It is highly advantageous for the energy storage community and glass and ceramics community to collaborate more frequently. Learn about how one student's research fosters collaboration in this month's Deciphering column, in which Washington State University Ph.D. candidate Michael L. Kindle describes his research on glass-ceramic solid-state conductors and glass electrodes.
Finally, ACerS has made some big announcements recently—learn about future plans and goals for MCARE, Pan American Ceramics Congress, diversity on the Board and Nominating Committee, plus more.

Tissue engineering and additively manufactured ceramic-based biomaterials—Addressing real-world needs with effective and practical materials technologies
Adam E. JakusMedicine and materials converge for new approaches to tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
P. I. GoumaDetecting and correctly diagnosing sleep disorders improves people's lives and health. An isoprene sensor/breathalyzer offers one potential way to accurately detect sleep disorders.
Oscar Peitl and Edgar D. ZanottoUnderstanding the mechanism behind bubble formation in glass-ceramics can lead to the creation of bubble-free glass. An experimental "bubble map" could help increase understanding.
