American Ceramic Society Bulletin, Vol. 100, No. 8 | www.ceramics.org 5 Celebrating 100 years Custom designed furnace systems for the energy communities ISO 9001: 2015 CERTIFIED ASME NQA-1 2008 QUALITY ASSURANCE www.dkfdllc.com Our group recently featured an exten- sive discussion in Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews over the application of miRNA for wound healing and the current trends that have been contended.3 We used miRNA-146a for local treatment of diabetic wound healing with the rare earth oxide ceria, which has antioxidant properties. Manipulating this element into ceria nanoparticles resulted in the delivery assistance of miRNA. Subsequent publica- tions involving the research of this miRNA treatment to improve wound healing used other biomaterial delivery strategies, includ- ing nano-silk or a novel zwitterionic gel.

In its early days, Allied sold minerals from a home office and garage in north- west Columbus, Ohio. The need for warehouse space led co-found- ers Bill Winemiller and Bob Scott to lease a downtown building off East Chestnut Street. Today, Allied’s current headquarters and manufacturing campus spans 40 acres on the west side of Columbus. This flagship location houses a state-of-the-art research and technology center and a newly renovated monolithic and precast shapes manufac- turing facility.
