A Bond Life Sciences Center researcher has been inducted into an elite organization comprised of two percent of all medical and biological engineers.
The American Institution for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) this week announced the induction of Dong Xu, a Bond LSC principal investigator and Shumaker Endowed Professor in the University of Missouri’s College of Engineering.
“Election to the AIMBE College of Fellows is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to a medical and biological engineer,” said Kamrul Islam, chair of the college’s Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department.
Xu was selected for his “distinguished contributions to bioinformatics and computational biology, and extensive services to University of Missouri and his research community.”
In addition to his endowed faculty position, Xu serves as director of the Information Technology program, whose core facility is housed in Bond LSC.
Membership to AIMBE’s College of Fellows recognizes those who have made outstanding contributions to engineering and medicine research, practice or education, and to those pioneering new and developing fields.
Because of health concerns, AIMBE’s annual meeting and induction ceremony scheduled for this spring was canceled. Under special procedures, the induction was held remotely.
