Abstract

The current National Science Foundation (NSF) - Engineering Research Center (ERC) is transforming the current medical and surgical treatments by creating "smart" implants for craniofacial, dental, orthopedic, cardiovascular, thoracic and neural interventions. The ERC is developing biodegradable metals with the premise that new kinds of implants can adapt to the human body and eventually dissolve when no longer needed, eliminating multiple surgeries and reduce health care costs. Magnesium based biodegradable systems offer significant therapeutic advantages over implants used today. Breakthrough activities include development, processing and testing of novel degradable alloy systems, new improved versions of existing clinical-use plates, screws and stents, innovative nanocoating technologies to yield special surface functionalities and methods to control implant corrosion, biocompatibility and improved bone growth. Additionally, the Mg based alloys are widely acknowledged to have enormous potential for lightweight structural applications, given their low density, high specific strength, good castability and better damping capacity. However, to actualize the widespread interest in Mg-alloys for light weighting applications, focused efforts are required to reach the strength, ductility, and corrosion resistance design end goals

The talk will specifically provide a scientific update on the various innovations, translation and trailblazing pathways for developing the biodegradable implants to light weighting applications through holistic University- Industry partnerships for economic ecosystem and commercialization
