Anthony Yin, ARCS Scholar 2018-2019 is working on his PhD in Mechanical Engineering. His current research is focused on creating porous fluorhydroxyapatite scaffolds using freeze casting. He is analyzing the material and mechanical properties of the porous scaffolds as well as looking into the viability of human osteoblast cells as these scaffolds were made for potential use as biomedical implants for bone repair. Last year Anthony (shown below) presented his research at TMS 2020 (The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society) and was awarded second place in the Biological Materials Science Symposium poster competition for his presentation on "Microphere Calcium Phosphate Cements to Improve Injectabiity and 3D-printability of Dental Biomaterials." Krista Carlson and Steven Nalaway were also authors of the presentation.
