Three professors from Purdue University will be inducted next month as fellows of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering. The university says the AIMBE College of Fellows represents the top two percent of medical and biological engineers in the country.
Pedro Irazoqui, professor of biomedical engineering and electrical and computer engineering, associate head of the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering and director of the Center for Implantable Devices, is among the Purdue professors being inducted. He was selected for outstanding contributions to implantable electronic devices.
Zhen Ouyang, professor of biomedical engineering, electrical and computer engineering, and chemistry, will also be inducted. He was selected for outstanding contributions in converting mass spectrometry from a massive analytical instrument into a point-of-care biomedical device through miniaturization and ambient ionization technology development.
The third professor being inducted is Ann Rundell, professor of biomedical engineering and electrical and computer engineering. She was selected for her use of control theory to solve problems in biomedicine.
The professors were nominated, reviewed and elected by peers and members of the AIMBE College of Fellows. The induction will be held during AIMBE’s 25th annual meeting April 4 in Washington D.C.
