5th ERC-RMB Student Association newsletter is released

May 30, 2014

Welcome to the fifth student-generated newsletter of the Engineering Research Cen-ter for Revolutionizing Metallic Biomaterials (ERC-RMB). Our Gen 3 ERC’s mission is to transform current medical and surgical treat-ments by creating "smart" implants to im-prove treatments for orthopedic, craniofa-cial, and cardiovascular ailments coupled with the development of a vibrant, diverse workforce well-prepared for the multidiscipli-nary and global challenges and opportunities of the new millennium.

Over the years of the ERC-RMB’s existence, it has been incredibly satisfying for me per-sonally to observe the growth in maturity and communications skills of our Student Leadership Council membership as they rally behind the Center philosophy "One Team, One Dream" and report on the Center’s out-standing accomplishments on multiple fronts. My colleagues and I are truly excited about the intellectual growth and leadership of these ERC-RMB students—our next-generation innovators and thinkers.

4th ERC-RMB Student Association newsletter is released

Welcome to the Spring 2013 issue of the student-produced ERC-RMB newsletter. This is an exciting time for our ERC as we continue to increase in both the level of scientific research being performed on our campuses and the impact we have on our communities. The Student Leadership Council (SLC) is pleased to report the outstanding progress of both research activities and educational and outreach efforts.

This issue of the newsletter highlights the global presence, accomplishments, and collaborative research efforts taking place within our dynamic Center. Featured articles include updates on student travel to international conferences held in Italy and India. The strong representation and numerous accomplishments of the SLC at the 2012 ERC Annual Meeting are also highlighted. The SLC was also able to host two separate workshops on Sensors and Craniofacial Devices as sessions during Student Retreats to increase the awareness of research accomplishments and to provide increased opportunities for collaboration among participating institutions.

As always, we greatly appreciate and commend the effort put forth by our newsletter editor, Da-Tren Chou, as well as the continued support and excellent guidance from the ERC leadership team.
