Congrats to new AIMBE fellows from UCLA Bioengineering, Wentai Liu, Gerard Wong, and Denise R. Aberle!
Fellows are nominated each year by their peers and represent the top 2% of the medical and biological engineering community. Most Fellows hail from the United States, but there are international Fellows. They are considered the life-blood of AIMBE and work towards realizing AIMBE’s vision to provide medical and biological engineering innovation for the benefit of humanity. The Chair of the College of Fellows leads the committee that plans the overall program at AIMBE’s Annual Event, held each spring in Washington.
Since AIMBE’s inception, over 2,200 esteemed individuals have been inducted to AIMBE’s College of Fellows. AIMBE’s College consists of clinicians, industry professionals, academics and scientists, who have distinguished themselves through their contributions in research, industrial practice and/or education. Fundamental to their achievements is the common goal of embracing innovation to improve the healthcare and safety of society.
