Dr. Oh earned his BS and MS in material engineering from Yonsei University and Ph.D. in biomaterial engineering from Yeungnam University. His expertise is in the area of biomaterials for regenerative medicine and his research interests lies at the interfaces of fundamental material science, biology, and clinical applications at the macro-, micro- and nano- levels, especially in understanding the role of physiochemical microenvironments in stem cell development.
Dr. Oh has published over 130 scientific articles, proceedings, book chapters, and is the inventor on three patents. Dr. Oh served as a present/co-funder of “GenOsteo” that is a spin-off company by University of Texas at San Antonio of his invention “Bi-layered Bone-Like Scaffolds” (2008-2010).
Dr. Oh serves on the committee on Medical and Surgical Materials and Devices (F04) of American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) (2008-present). Dr. Oh was the recipient of a Unilever Hatton Award in American Association for Dental Research, a Best Scientific Presentation Award in Academy of Osseointegration (2010 & 2011).
His teaching has been primarily in the application of biomaterials and experimental design in tissue engineering for clinical applications.
