Noam Eliaz is an Associate Professor at Tel-Aviv University, Israel, where he serves as the Head of The Biomaterials and Corrosion Laboratory. He also serves as a Chief Editor of the journal Corrosion Reviews (jointly with Ron Latanision). He received his B.Sc. and Ph.D. (direct track) in Materials Engineering, both cum laude, from Ben-Gurion University. Next, he became the first ever materials scientist to receive, simultaneously, a Fulbright postdoctoral award and a Rothschild postdoctoral fellowship and worked for two years in the H.H. Uhlig Corrosion Laboratory at M.I.T. To-date, he has contributed more than 230 journal and conference publications, including 31 plenary and invited talks, as well as 5 book chapters. In addition to editing this Degradation of Implant Materials book, he has edited a double volume entitled Applications of Electrochemistry and Nanotechnology in Biology and Medicine for the reputed book series Modern Aspects of Electrochemistry (Springer). He has garnered numerous accolades, including the T.P. Hoar Award for the best paper published in Corrosion Science during 2001 (on corrosion of Ti-Ag-based alloys processed by three-dimensional printing for biomedical applications), and NACE International's Herbert H. Uhlig Award (2010) and Fellow Award (2012). His main research interests include environment-induced degradation of materials, failure analysis, Bio-Ferrography, biomaterials (with focus on electrocrystallization of hydroxyapatite and other calcium phosphates), and electrochemical processing (namely, electrodeposition, electroless deposition and electropolishing) of materials.
