Dr. Philip J. Boyne spent a 20 year career in the U.S. Navy and a second career as a professor and research scientist in advanced dental education. Dr. Boyne's research and teachings covered many areas with a focus on maxillofacial bone grafting and regeneration. He was the first to develop and report many surgical procedures. His research has involved the application of bone-inductor cytokines to produce bone repair without the necessity of bone grafting. He has authored textbooks and book chapters on maxillofacial surgery, and has published more than 230 articles in refereed (peer reviewed) journals. Dr. Boyne passed away June 9, 2008 and will be remembered for his positive outlook on life, his enthusiastic spirit, his legacy of mentorship, his creativity, dedication to dental education research and unfailing adaptability.
