About the Acta Materialia Gold Medal

The Acta Materialia Gold Medal is awarded annually by the Board of Governors of Acta Materialia, Inc., with partial financial support from Elsevier, Ltd. Nominees are solicited each year from the Cooperating Societies, Sponsoring Societies of Acta Materialia, Inc. and general biomaterials community, based on demonstrated ability and leadership in biomaterials research and technology. The candidates are placed on a ballot for the selection committee (a distinguished panel of international judges). A preferential ballot is then conducted among the judges and the candidate with the most points is awarded the Gold Medal. The Award consists of the gold medal, an inscribed certificate, and a cash honorarium.
