“It is a great honor for me to be elected to the AIMBE College of Fellows, which is a prestigious recognition of my contribution in the field of biomedical engineering,” said Wang. “I am so excited to join the group of great scientists and engineers in the endeavor of advancing the research and innovations in the field.”
According to the AIMBE website, fellows are nominated each year by their peers and represent the top 2% of the medical and biological engineering community. 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. Since AIMBE’s inception, over 1,500 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.
“Dr. Wang has contributed extensively to published literature in the form of journal and conference papers, books and chapters in addition to making critical contributions to the biomechanics of bone by investigating the interaction of collagen and calcium phosphate mineral at the microstructural and untrastructural levels,” said Dr. Mauli Agrawal, vice president for research at The University of Texas at San Antonio. “His mark in the medical and biological engineering field is indelible and he is highly worthy of recognition as an AIMBE Fellow.”
