Susmita Bose is the Herman and Brita Lindholm Endowed Chair Professor at the School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering at Washington State University. Prof. Bose received the BS degree from Kalyani University, WB, MS from IIT – Kanpur India, and PhD from Rutgers University, New Jersey in Chemistry. Prof. Bose’s interdisciplinary research interest lies at the interface of Chemistry, Materials Science, Mechanical Engineering, Bioengineering and Biology, focusing on 3D printed bone scaffolds, implant materials and drug delivery vehicles. Prof. Bose received the CAREER award and the prestigious Presidential Early Career Award for Scientist and Engineers (PECASE) from the National Science Foundation. She has advised over 40 graduate students for their MS and PhD, published over 240 technical articles including over 190 journal articles, 15 book chapters, 7 edited books, 10 patents. Her research papers have been cited over 13,300 times (current ‘h” index 64, according to the Google scholar). She was invited as “Kavli fellow” by the US National Academy of Sciences, received the PACE and Fulrath Awards from the American Ceramic Society. In 2015, Prof. Bose was named as Life Science Innovation Northwest Women to Watch Honoree, by the Washington Biotechnology and Biomedical Association. In 2016, she received the International Society for Ceramics in Medicine research excellence award. She is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), National Academy of Inventors (NAI), Materials Research Society (MRS), ASM International, American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) and the American Ceramic Society (ACerS). In 2017 she has been elected to the Washington State Academy of Sciences. Prof. Bose's group research on 3D printed bone tissue engineering scaffolds with controlled chemistry has been featured by the AP, BBC, NPR, CBS, MSNBC, ABC, and many other TV, radio stations, magazines and news sites all over the world.
