The American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) announced the election of 174 new members of the AIMBE College of Fellows in recognition of their distinguished and continuing achievements in medical and biological engineering. Two of those inductees include McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine affiliated faculty members:
- Adam Feinberg, PhD, Professor, Department of Biomedical Engineering, Carnegie Mellon University: Dr. Feinberg was nominated, reviewed, and elected by peers and members of the College of Fellows for outstanding contributions to tissue engineering and 3D bioprinting.
- Kathryn Whitehead, PhD, Associate Professor, Department of Chemical Engineering, Carnegie Mellon University: Dr. Whitehead was nominated, reviewed, and elected by peers and members of the College of Fellows for developing innovative technologies for biologics delivery and for active advocacy of diversity and inclusivity in academia.
Election to the AIMBE College of Fellows is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to a medical and biological engineer. The College of Fellows is comprised of the top two percent of medical and biological engineers. College membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to “engineering and medicine research, practice, or education” and to “the pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of medical and biological engineering, or developing/implementing innovative approaches to bioengineering education.”
AIMBE Fellows are among the most distinguished medical and biological engineers including 3 Nobel Prize laureates, 18 Fellows having received the Presidential Medal of Science and/or Technology and Innovation, and 195 also inducted to the National Academy of Engineering, 94 inducted to the National Academy of Medicine, and 43 inducted to the National Academy of Sciences.
Congratulations, Drs. Feinberg and Whitehead!
