Materials Letters: New Editor-in-Chief
We are pleased to welcome Aldo Boccaccini to the role of Editor-in-Chief for Materials Letters.
Professor Aldo R. Boccaccini is the Head of the Institute of Biomaterials at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany. Previously he was Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at Imperial College London, UK, where he remains Visiting Professor. Boccaccini holds a nuclear engineering degree from Instituto Balseiro (Argentina), PhD from Aachen University of Technology (Germany) and Habilitation from Ilmenau University of Technology (Germany). He has had post-doctoral appointments at the University of Birmingham (UK), the University of California at San Diego (USA) and the Ilmenau University of Technology.
The research activities of Prof. Boccaccini are in the broad area of glasses, ceramics and polymer/glass composites for biomedical, functional and/or structural applications. He has published widely being the author or co-author of more than 370 scientific papers and several book chapters on topics ranging from glasses and composites, bioactive materials for tissue engineering and porousmaterials, to electrophoretic deposition, sintering, ceramic matrix composites and sustainable materials.
He has received several awards such as Adolf Martens Prize, Berlin, Materials Science and Technology Prize by the Federation of European Materials Society and the Verulam Medal and Prize of the UK Institute of Materials Minerals and Mining (IOM3). He has been involved in the organization of several international conferences as chairman or member of international organizing committees and is the founder and chairman of the International Conference series on Electrophoretic Deposition.
Boccaccini is also an international advisor to the Ministry of Science and Technology of Argentina.
We are confident that he will contribute to the existing reputation of our journal and strengthen its position in the scientific community. We wish him every success and personal satisfaction in his new position.
