Clare Rimnac, Distinguished University Professor and the Wilbert J. Austin Professor of engineering, was named among the American Society Metals (ASM) International Class of 2020 Fellows in recognition of her “sustained research excellence in orthopedic biomechanics and biomaterials, particularly degradation of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene and materials performance of implants and bone.”

In 1969, ASM established the fellow of the society honor to provide recognition to members for their distinguished contributions to materials science and engineering and to develop a broadly based forum of technical and professional leaders to serve as advisors to the society.

The solicited guidance, which Rimnac and the other fellows will provide, will enhance the capability of ASM as a technical community of materials science and engineering in the years ahead.
