Chemical and Biochemical Engineering professor, Jesse Zhu, has been recognized by Biomedical Materials as having one of the best papers published within the last two years.

Zhu’s paper, “TiO2-enriched polymeric powder coatings support human mesenchymal cell spreading and osteogenic differentiation, was published in collaboration with his PhD student Mohammad Sayem Mozumder and Hiran Perinpanayagam, a colleague from the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry.

The main focus of the paper is a novel coating technology that supports the growth of human mesenchymal cell spreading, which can make the coated biomaterials more biocompatible.

Biomedical Materials publishes original research findings that contribute to our knowledge about the composition, properties, and performance of materials for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.

The Biomedical Materials Highlights of 2011 and Biomedical Materials Highlights of 2012 is a collection that represents the breadth and excellence of the work published in the journal last year. The articles were selected for the high praise received from referees, presentation of high quality research and popularity with our online readership reflected in the number of downloads.
