Delbert E. Day, CerE’58, was honored during a symposium named for him in July 2019 in Toronto. Researchers discussed work similar or related to Day’s research, and talked about how their personal relationships with Day have influenced them.

The symposium was held in conjunction with two global ceramics conferences: the Second Global Forum on Advanced Materials and Technologies for Sustainable Development and the Fourth International Conference on Innovations in Biomaterials, Biomanufacturing and Biotechnologies.

Speakers from around the world discussed Day’s contributions to the field, including development of Theraspheres for treating cancer and his work with Steve Jung, CerE’05, MS CerE’07, PhD MSE’10, to develop wound-healing borate glass fibers. He was recognized as a teacher and mentor by many. 

Mohamed Rahaman, professor emeritus of ceramic engineering, and Richard Brow, interim deputy provost for academic excellence and Curators’ Distinguished Professor of materials science and engineering, organized the symposium.
