Glass Pioneer, Jobs, & OSU Scholars Program (August 2017)

Steven B. Jung, Ph.D. (MO B ’06), is CTO of Mo-Sci Corporation, a custom glass solutions company located minutes from the Missouri S&T campus. Dr. Jung began working there almost immediately after completing his Ph.D. dissertation. An article from Missouri S&T Magazine, profiles Jung and his relationship with Mo-Sci Corp. founder and S&T professor emeritus Delbert E. Day, Ph.D. (MO B ’58).

Jung and Day began collaborating on research “into the effect of borate-based glasses on soft tissue.” This has led to Jung becoming a Dr. Day protégé with 15 U.S. and foreign patents to his name.
