Roeder Receives Early Career Award from TMS

Ryan K. Roeder, assistant professor of aerospace and mechanical engineering, has been named the first recipient of the Early Career Faculty Fellow Award by The Mineral, Metals & Materials Society (TMS).

This award honors a young faculty member for his or her accomplishments, specifically those that advance the academic institution with which the individual is affiliated, as well as those that broaden the technological profile of the society. It was presented in February 2007 during a conference at which Roeder delivered the TMS Young Leaders Tutorial Lecture.

Roeder, who joined the University in 2001, specializes in biomaterials, materials science and mechanical behavior and is part of the Biomechanics and Biomaterials in Orthopaedics group in the College of Engineering. One of his current projects, which is funded by the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, focuses on the development of non-invasive techniques to better detect and image microdamage in bone. Another project, funded by the Indiana 21st Century Research and Technology Fund, involves the study of processing-structure-property relationships in hydroxyapatite whisker reinforced polymers for synthetic bone substitutes.

The author and co-author of numerous journal articles and conference proceedings, Roeder is also listed on two patents for synthetic bone substitutes and scaffolds.
