Professor and Senior Associate Vice Provost for Translational
Research Michele Marcolongo was quoted in a
November 16, 2012 Science article on the recent maturation of the
field of biomaterials.
The article describes how the past few years have seen steady
growth in biomaterials research and its progress toward the clinic,
but that funding and career opportunities need to catch up with
this growth. Marcolongo discusses the impact of increased
student interest in biomaterials and how researchers support their
work, given the challenges of limited funding opportunities.
