Fellows of Biomaterials Science and Engineering (FBSE)

Background

In April 1992, the constituent biomaterials societies of the World Biomaterials Congress, now the IUSBSE, recognized the need for the public recognition of those of their members who have gained a status of excellent professional standing and high achievements in the field of biomaterials science and engineering.

The honorary status of "Fellow, Biomaterials Science and Engineering" (FBSE) was therefore established.

Fellows are to be considered as accomplished members and role models in the field of biomaterials science and engineering. Fellows are expected, through word and deed, to foster the field of biomaterials and to support its professional development as a practical and intellectual endeavour.

New Fellows are announced and recognised at World Biomaterials Congresses.

The duly nominated, approved, confirmed, and installed fellow has the right to carry the letters FBSE. These letters indicate the national recognition and international respect of his/her comprehension of professional issues and accomplishments as a scientist or engineer in the field of biomaterials science and engineering.

The fellow status is awarded for life.

A Fellow has all rights and obligations of an active member of their Society.

It is expected that Fellows shall recognise individual achievements and contributions to the practice of BSE, foster professional interactions of BSE practitioners among each other, and with medical practitioners, patients, regulatory and legislative offices, and the public, promote public awareness of the profession of BSE, and promote and encourage professional and continuing education in BSE.

Nominations

Each IUSBSE Member Society has established its own process for nomination of potential Fellows. These processes are based on the following guidelines.

  • Candidates for Fellow status are to be nominated and evaluated by existing Fellows
  • Candidates should have at least ten years of scientific or professional contributions to the field of biomaterials science and engineering.
  • Candidates should have at least ten years of continuous active (full) membership upon nomination, or alternatively, founding membership in the Society.
  • Candidates should have appropriate professional training (a bachelor's degree and a professional or research degree), competence, and good standing in a discipline appropriate for biomaterials science and engineering research. Exceptions can be approved with sufficient justification.
  • Candidates should have significant contributions to the field of Biomaterials Science and Engineering documented by a continuous productivity in biomaterials research, development, education, or administration. The documents shall evidence an increasing leadership role.
  • Candidates should have a continuing record of publication in refereed journals appropriate to the candidate's contributions to the field.

Member Societies shall have no more fellows than 10% of its active membership. Active Fellows are those who maintain an active membership

All nominations shall be kept confidential.

Approval

Confirmed on an international level by IUSBSE.

Recommendations are submitted to the IUSBSE for consideration and confirmation. The IUSBSE can grant or deny confirmation on grounds of insufficient qualification or professional or ethical misconduct. The IUSBSE retains the right to confirm or deny award of the fellowship.

Approved candidates are installed on an international level at a World Congress.
