Stanford Medicine News Center - March 24th, 2021
The American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering has announced the election of three Stanford University faculty members to its college of fellows.
The institute’s mission is to recognize excellence in and advocate for medical and biological engineering to advance society. The college of fellows comprises medical and biological engineers who have distinguished themselves in research, industry or education. Nominees are elected to the college by their peers and members of the college.
Drew Endy, PhD, associate professor of bioengineering, was elected for his work in synthetic biology and for advancing biological engineering to benefit society. Endy has made contributions to open technical standards for biotechnology, as well as to improved biosafety, biosecurity and biodiversity.
Michael Moseley, PhD, professor of radiology, was elected for his pioneering contributions to diffusion MRI in creating new fields for assessing brain injury, neurography and cognitive performance. Moseley focuses on research and diagnosis of disease states, using new techniques of magnetic resonance in research and clinical practice.
Fan Yang, PhD, associate professor of orthopaedic surgery and of bioengineering, was elected for outstanding contributions to biomaterials science and engineering for tissue regeneration and cancer biology applications. Yang is especially interested in developing biomaterials and cell-based therapeutics to improve regeneration of various musculoskeletal tissues, including bone, cartilage, tendon and blood vessels.
A formal induction ceremony will be held at institute’s 2021 annual event on March 26. Endy, Moseley and Yang will be inducted along with 174 colleagues who make up the 2021 class of fellows.
