He has written a Springer textbook on maxillofacial reconstruction and contributed to 18 chapters in textbooks concerning oral and maxillofacial surgery, oncology, maxillofacial reconstruction, microvascular reconstruction, and tissue engineering. In addition, he is the author of more than 25 articles in peer-reviewed journals. He is a reviewer for the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Triple OOOO Journal, Journal of Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgery, and Journal of Tissue Engineering.
As we look forward to the 2024 Osteo Science Foundation Bone Symposium, we are pleased to provide two relevant articles by speakers participating in the symposium. The articles, one clinical and one translational (with accompanying study guide), are linked below. We hope that you will be able to use these articles in your next Journal Club. Not only will they provide some advance learning for those who will be in person at the Bone Symposium, they will also be useful as a prepared discussion for those not able to attend the Bone Symposium.
A special challenge to residents: Recap one of the articles from the Journal Club in a brief video submission (60 seconds or shorter) for a chance to win complimentary registration and a $1,000 travel award to the Osteo Science Foundation Bone Symposium. See below for submission details.
IMPORTANT DATES FOR RESIDENTS
January 8: Deadline for video submissions
January 11: Winner notified
Antonios Mikos, Dipl. Eng., PhD will present Biomaterials for Biomolecule and Cell Delivery in Tissue Engineering Applications at the Osteo Science Foundation Bone Symposium in February 2024.
Antonios G. Mikos is the Louis Calder Professor of Bioengineering and Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Rice University. His research focuses on the synthesis, processing, and evaluation of new biomaterials for use as scaffolds for tissue engineering, as carriers for controlled drug delivery, as non-viral vectors for gene therapy, and as platforms for disease modeling. He is the author of over 690 publications and the inventor of 32 patents. Mikos is a Member of the National Academy of Engineering, the National Academy of Medicine, the National Academy of Inventors, the Chinese Academy of Engineering, the Academia Europaea, and the Academy of Athens.

Meet the authors
James C. Melville, DDS, is an associate professor in the Bernard and Gloria Pepper Katz Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeryat UTHealth School of Dentistry. He graduated from University of Michigan School of Dentistry in Ann Arbor, Michigan, in 2005 and completed a general practice residency at University of California, San Francisco in 2006. He completed a residency in oral and maxillofacial surgery in 2012, followed by fellowships in oral, head, and neck oncology, and microvascular reconstructive surgery at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital. He was appointed UT OMS internship director in 2017.
He is a diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and a fellow of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, the American Academy of Craniomaxillofacial Surgeons, and American College of Surgeons.
Dr. Melville was awarded the Faculty Educator Development Award (FEDA) in 2019 by AAOMS, an award given to promising young academic surgeons. In 2020, he was awarded the AAOMS Advocacy Challenge Coin by the association’s board of trustees and committee on government affairs. The challenge coin was designed to recognize AAOMS members who have made significant advocacy contributions on behalf of the association.
Simon Young, DDS, MD, PhD, FACS
will present Developing a Challenging Preclinical Model of Compromised Wound Healing at the Osteo Science Foundation Bone Symposium in February 2024.
Dr. Young completed an integrated OMS/MD/PhD program at Rice University and UTHealth Houston in 2013. He subsequently was awarded an NIH K99/R00 Pathway to Independence Award and spent two years as a post-doc research fellow at Harvard University before returning to the Katz Department of OMS at UTHealth Houston in 2015. Dr. Young’s primary role is as an NIH-funded surgeon-scientist studying translational applications of biomaterials in craniomaxillofacial tissue regeneration and cancer immunotherapy.
