Five faculty members of the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute will be inducted into the College of Fellows of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE).
The college features the top 2 percent of engineers involved in the medical and biological field. They come from throughout the U.S. and comprise the most distinguished, accomplished medical and engineering school chairs, professors, research directors, innovators and successful entrepreneurs.
“I am delighted with the induction of five School of Engineering faculty into the AIMBE College of Fellows,” Shekhar Garde, dean of engineering, said. “Their research, spanning bio-imaging to virtual surgery and metabolic engineering to regenerative medicine, exemplifies the exciting work being done at the intersections of disciplines here at Rensselaer.”
The research from the professors demonstrates the kind of work that Rensselaer is accomplishing. The school and its research provides a new worldview for research and learning, addressing the challenging worldwide challenges in various industries.
These challenges require collaboration, interdisciplinary work, and technology and tools, many of which are under development at Rensselaer.
The induction ceremony will be held Monday at the National Academy of Sciences Great Hall in Washington, D.C. as part of the 25th annual AIMBE meeting.
