Dr. Tang Named 2012 Fellow of IUS-BSE
Thursday, May 17, 2012
Liping Tang, a University of Texas at Arlington bioengineering professor, has been named a 2012 Fellow of the International Union of Societies for Biomaterials Science and Engineering (IUS-BSE). This recognition is bestowed upon a very selective group of biomaterial engineers worldwide, totaling just 218 fellows in the world.
The honorary status of "Fellow, Biomaterials Science and Engineering" (FBSE) was established in April 1992 after the constituent biomaterials societies of the World Biomaterials Congress, now the IUS-BSE, recognized the need for the public recognition of their members who have gained a status of excellent professional standing and high achievements in the field of biomaterials science and engineering. Fellows are expected to foster the field of biomaterials and to support its professional development as a practical and intellectual endeavor.
“Professor Tang's recognition by the International Union of Societies for Biomaterials Science and Engineering illustrates the outstanding education and research taking place in the College of Engineering at UT Arlington. Dr. Tang excels not only in research on biomaterials but also in education. He is passionate about bringing science and engineering not only to his students at the University level, but also to high school students through science fairs in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex,” said College of Engineering Dean Jean-Pierre Bardet.
Dr. Tang’s research focuses on tissue engineering and regeneration and adult stem cell harvesting. He was named a Fellow of The American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering in December 2011.
