Andy H. Choi Dr. Andy H. Choi is an early career researcher who received his Ph.D. from the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) in Australia in 2004 on the use of computer modelling and simulation known as finite element analysis (FEA) to examine the biomechanical behavior of implants installed into a human mandible. After completing his Ph.D., he expanded his research focus from FEA to sol-gel synthesis of multifunctional calcium phosphate nano coatings and nano composite coatings for dental and biomedical applications.In late 2010, Dr. Choi was successfully awarded the internationally competitive Endeavour Australia Cheung Kong Research Fellowship Award and undertook post-doctoral training at the Faculty of Dentistry of the University of Hong Kong focusing on the application of FEA in dentistry and the development of calcium phosphate nano-bioceramics.He is currently serving as an associate editor for the Journal of the Australian Ceramic Society and as an editor for a number of dentistry-related journals. In addition, he is also serving as an editorial board member for several dentistry, nanotechnology, and orthopedics journals. To date, Dr. Choi has published over 50 publications including 5 books and 30 book chapters on calcium phosphate, nano-biomaterial coatings, sol-gel technology, marine structures, drug delivery, tissue engineering, and finite element analysis in nanomedicine and dentistry.Sian Yik Lim Dr. Lim is a rheumatologist at Pali Momi Bone and Joint Center, Hawaii Pacific Health. He currently runs a specialty osteoporosis clinic at Pali Momi Bone and Joint Center and has been involved in efforts to improve the quality of osteoporosis care in Hawaii. He is a clinical densitometrist certified by the International Society for Clinical Densitometry. After graduating from Osaka University School of Medicine, he subsequently trained in internal medicine and rheumatology in the United States.
