8th SLC Newsletter

November 21, 2017

Welcome to the 2016-2017 issue of the student-generated ERC-RMB newsletter. The ERC-RMB continued to enhance the scientific research progress while simultaneously impacting the local communities with STEMrelated activities. The Student Leadership Council (SLC) is pleased to report our Year 8 progress revolving around research activities, education and outreach efforts and student accomplishments.

Featured articles include updates on student travel and knowledge gained from both national and international conferences. The SLC hosted a standardization workshop at this year student retreat exposing the students to the importance of the development of working standards for characterization of bioabsorbable metallic materials. Graduated students have been able to successfully transition into careers in industry as showcased through the alumni highlights. This year there was momentous advancement made in student research as seen in the abundance of papers we published, with some selections showcased in this newsletter. The talent in our dynamic center was put on display in a number of recognitions and strong showings in competitions on both research and entrepreneurship.

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