Dr. Ebru Oral
Dr. Ebru Oral is an Associate Professor of Orthopaedics at Harvard Medical School and the Associate Director of Biomaterials at the Harris Orthopaedic Laboratory at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). She is an expert on polymeric bearing surfaces for joint replacement. Among other honors, she is a Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors, the highest national honor for inventors and a Fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineers, an honor for the top 1-2% of biomedical scientists.
Dr. Oral received her BS degree from Boğaziçi University in Turkey and her PhD from Purdue University, both in Chemical Engineering. Her research is in the science, application, and relevant testing of implantable polymeric materials to address medical problems. Her work on joint implants resulted in the first clinical use of vitamin E-stabilized cross-linked UHMWPE joint implants. Her current work is in incorporating therapeutics for the controlled local release of antibiotics, anti-inflammatories and analgesics from implantable materials. She has over 60 peer-reviewed publications with an h-index of 32 and numerous book chapters and preprints.
