I am an Orthopedic Surgeon and a Fellow in Biomaterials Science and Engineering. I selected the New Jersey Center for Biomaterials and Rutgers University, where I am Research Professor, as sites of excellence to pursue research in regeneration of Bone, Nerve and Spinal Cord. In my role of Clinical Editor of the “Journal of Materials Science: Materials in Medicine” (Springer-Nature group) this is a privileged point of observation of the leading edge in Biomaterials development. Being funded by the New Jersey Commission on Spinal Cord Research and the New Jersey Health Foundation gives me another reason to thank to be in The State University of New Jersey.
