Professor Larry Hench, inventor of Bioglass, will be giving a public lecture on "21st century challenges for materials science" at noon on Thursday, April 24, in Room 204 of McNutt. Bioglass is the first human-made material that bonds to living tissue, and it is used globally for a wide variety of therapeutic applications.
In addition, Hench is the author of the "Boing, Boing the Cat" series of children’s books. These books are intended to introduce engineering and science topics to kids. He will be signing copies of his books at 11:30 a.m. in McNutt.
