We are delighted to congratulate our Fellow, Professor Hala Zreiqat AM FTSE FAHMS on her election as a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering (ATSE) this week.
Professor Zreiqat has developed a novel class of ceramic biomaterials for musculoskeletal regeneration, pioneering new cell, molecular biology and nanoscience techniques to produce ceramics that combine high strength and bioactivity. She also developed the technology to fabricate these biomaterials as 3D-printed patient-specific implants.
She is Director of the ARC Centre for Innovative BioEngineering, Chair of the international Alliance for Design and Application in Tissue Engineering, and Founder of the IDEAL Society, an international network to improve opportunities for women. In 2018, she received the prestigious NSW Premier’s Woman of the Year Award, for scientific achievement and mentorship of women.
We warmly congratulate Professor Zreiqat on this tremendous achievement.
