Short Bio

Hui-suk Yun is the head of the Department of Advanced Biomaterials Research at the Korea Institute of Materials Science (KIMS) and a professor at the University of Science & Technology (UST) in the Department of  Materials Science. Furthermore, she is an advisory committee member for the Ministry of Science and ICT, Korea and a medical devices committee member for the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety, Korea. She was also working for the Korea government as a deliberative council member on the Presidential Advisory Council of Science and Technology.

Yun holds a Ph.D. in Materials Science Engineering from the University of Tokyo, Japan. She completed her post-doctoral research at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST, Japan) and then began working as a lecturer at the Consolidated Research Institute for Advanced Science and Medical Care at Waseda University, Japan. Her research interests include bioceramics in tissue engineering, porous materials, and technologies for ceramic additive manufacturing, including materials, processes, and systems.

Yun has 38 domestic patents, 8 international patents, and has published over 73 SCI papers. She has also written 7 technology transfer contracts relating to ceramic additive manufacturing. Evidently, she is an accomplished academic who has received many honors, such as the 2023 plenary award from Engineering Ceramic Division of American Ceramic Society, the best performance award of running royalty from the Korean Intellectual Property Office, in 2021, the 2021 Global Ambassador Award and 2020 ECD Jubilee Global Diversity Award from the American Ceramic Society, the 100 Most Distinguished Researchers Achievement from the Ministry of Science and ICT, and the World’s Top Technology Prize from the Korea Institute of Materials Science.

Abstract body:

Additive manufacturing (AM), so called 3D printing, is a fabrication process that used digital information from a computer aided design file to stack 2D layers of various materials to produce a 3D object, without requiring any part-specific tooling. AM technology especially offers significant advantages in the medical industry as it permits the on-demand manufacture of low-volume or one-of-a-kind parts based on patient-specific need. Multi-material AM technologies are moreover fascinating in the tissue engineering fields because tissues or organs play multi-function and are composed of multi-component. Our group recently has developed original material extrusion based AM process for simultaneous manufacturing of hydrogel based cells and bioceramics for bone tissue regeneration. This novel process is carried out in gel bath condition, where we could fabricate the self-standing 3D ceramic structure without any supporting structure. Our group also have developed novel stereolithography based AM process for using multi-ceramic materials. We could mimic both structure and functions of bone by co-printing of calcium phosphate and bioactive glass. We furthermore could simultaneously imitate both shape and colors of tooth by manufacturing functionally graded materials structure using two types of feldspathic porcelain for applying aesthetic and restorative dentistry. We believe that these new technologies may expand application markets of AM technologies in various ceramic industries.
