Welcome to Bioengineering
Becoming an AIMBE Fellow is more than just another honorific designation. AIMBE Fellows are expected to "giveback" by contributing to AIMBE's critical mission of advancing excellence and advocating for the fields of medical and biological engineering . Never before has it been more critical for those in biomedical engineering to stand up for science and medical innovation.
Dr. Shankar Subramaniam is the Joan and Irwin Jacobs Endowed Chair Professor of Bioengineering and Systems Biology at the University of California San Diego. He is a distinguished professor of Bioengineering, Computer Science & Engineering, Cellular & Molecular Medicine and Nano Engineering at the University of California San Diego.
On August 10, 2017, Walt Baxter, Ph.D., a 1999 Graduate from UCSD Department of Bioengineering, was inducted at a black tie ceremony into Medtronic’s Bakken Society (http://adesignerportraits.com/2017-medtronic-bakken-society/). Medtronic is the world’s leading developer and distributor of medical devices such as cardiac pacemakers, implantable defibrillators, heart valves, brain stimulators, and diabetes management systems.
Dr. Contijoch earned his Ph.D. in 2015 from the University of Pennsylvania in Bioengineering. For his graduate research, he was awarded a Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) – NIH National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) Interfaces Fellowship as well as a National Institutes of Health National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute Fellowship.
Dr. King’s lab studies diseases that activate the body’s immune system even though there is no infection, such as heart attacks, metabolic disease, asthma, autoimmunity, and cancer. Researchers combine conventional biological techniques with bioengineering to uncover novel disease mechanisms and develop new therapies that limit organ dysfunction and promote healing, repair and regeneration. Previously he was a Cardiology fellow, at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He is the recipient of numerous honors and awards.
Dr. Valdez-Jasso received her Undergraduate and Masters degrees in Applied Mathematics, and her doctoral degree in Biomathematics, all from the Department of Mathematics at North Carolina State University. Her graduate thesis, which was recognized for its excellence with a Lucas Research Award, focused on modeling approaches to understanding the dynamic pressure-area relationship of systemic arteries.
