IAMBE Inducted 31 New Fellows


The International Academy of Medical and Biological Engineering (IAMBE) welcomed and inducted 31 Fellows on September 18, 2020 during the Virtual Induction Ceremony held during the 2020 Carnegie Mellon Forum on Biomedical Engineering and Annual Symposium of International Academy of Medical and Biological Engineering (BME Forum).

The IAMBE, affiliated with the International Federation of Medical and Biological Engineering (IFMBE), is made up of fellows who are recognized for their outstanding contributions to the profession of medical and biological engineering. Election to the Academy is highly selective, initiated by nominations which are involved with at least 3 current Fellows and screened by the Membership Committee of the Academy. The election is conducted by a vote of all Fellows of the Academy. There are currently less than 200 Fellows world-wide.
