Prof. Boccaccini (Head, Institute of Biomaterials, FAU, and member of the Scientific Board of the Centre for Functional and Surface Functionalized Glass) was awarded the Fellowship of the Society of Glass Technology (SGT) (LINK: https://www.sgt.org/about-the-sgt ) at the Annual Conference “Sand to Splendour” held in Cambridge, UK, on 2-5 September 2019. Prof. Boccaccini presented the invited lecture “Bioactive glasses: from bone regeneration to wound healing” at the Science Session of the Conference. Prof. Boccaccini said: “I have been participating in numerous conferences organised by SGT for many years and I have served in the SGT Basic Science and Technology Committee for more than 15 years. Indeed, I published one of my first papers (as PhD student, in 1995) in the SGT journal “Glass Technology”, so it is a real honor to have been recognised with the Fellowship of SGT, the prestigious Society serving the glass community for more than 100 years.
