ACerS Fellow Prashant Kumta has been a pioneer in the use of
nanoceramic materials for bone regeneration and to bind and transpor
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.
