Dr. Min Wang has been named a Fellow of the American Ceramic Society (ACerS)

Dr. Min Wang, a professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, has been named a Fellow of the American Ceramic Society (ACerS). Upon the recommendation of the Panel of Fellows, the ACerS Board of Directors unanimously approved the selection of Dr. Wang as a new ACerS Fellow. Dr. Wang thus becomes the first Hong Kong-based scientist/engineer being elected an ACerS Fellow. He will be honored during the 126th ACerS Annual Meeting that will be held at the Materials Science & Technology 2024 Conference & Exhibition (MS&T24, Oct. 6 - 9, 2024, Pittsburgh, PA, USA). Founded in 1898, ACerS is a leading professional society in the international ceramics community and has 10,000-plus members in more than 70 countries. It focuses on scientific research, emerging technologies and applications of ceramics around the globe. The election to ACerS Fellow is the recognition of individual member’s outstanding contributions to the ceramic arts or sciences, broad and productive scholarship in ceramic science and technology, and outstanding service to the society. ACerS Fellows come from an international cross section of leaders in academia, research labs, industry and government.


Dr. Wang joined University of Hong Kong (HKU) in 2003 and has been a full professor at HKU since 2008. He has worked in universities in the UK (1991-1997), Singapore (1997-2002) and Hong Kong (2002-Present) and has worked with multinational companies headquartered in the UK, USA and Hong Kong. Dr. Wang started biomaterials research in 1991 and began his work in tissue engineering in 1999. His research interests include biomedical materials, tissue engineering, controlled release/delivery of drugs/biomolecules/genes/cells, and bionanotechnology. He has conducted seminal research on bioactive ceramic-polymer composites for human hard tissue repair and is recognized internationally as a leader in biomedical composite research; he has performed pioneering research on 3D printing of novel tissue engineering scaffolds; and he has made outstanding contributions to the research of bioceramics, bioactive and protective ceramic coatings, and combination devices. He currently focuses on 3D/4D/5D printing in tissue engineering for regenerating tissues such as bone, osteochondral tissue, blood vessel, peripheral nerve, gastrointestinal tract and liver. Dr. Wang’s publications include over 200 journal articles, 25 book chapters and 660 abstracts/papers in conference proceedings, and his work has been widely cited by others. He has given over 200 invited/keynote/plenary talks at conferences in Western Europe, North America, Asia and Australia. He actively participates in ACerS activities and conferences. He and his research staff/students have won many awards for research, and he is a fellow (FBSE, FAIMBE, FRSC, FCSBM, etc.) of several professional societies. He is/was an Editor/Associate Editor of several journals (Progress in Materials Science, Medical & Biological Engineering & Computing, Journal of the Korean Ceramics Society, etc.) and serves/served in the Editorial Board of over 20 international scholarly journals. He is/was an elected Council Member of Hong Kong Institution of Engineers, Chinese Society for Biomaterials, International Federation for Medical and Biological Engineering, etc.
