Biomedical professors Anderson and Jansen elected into AIMBE’s College of Fellows

Adam Anderson, associate professor of biomedical engineering, and E. Duco Jansen, professor of biomedical engineering, have been elected into the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering’s (AIMBE) College of Fellows. Recipients of this honor, considered one of the highest in the biomedical engineering discipline, are chosen for exceptional leadership and achievements in medical and biological engineering.

The elected Fellows of AIMBE consist of the top two percent of biomedical engineers and include some of the most imaginative and distinguished bioengineers in the field. Their contributions impact biomedical devices and processes, treatment of diseases and public policy related to all aspects of bioengineering. The College of Fellows leads the way in technological advancement, advocating for public policies facilitating progress in medical and biological research and development to benefit the public. AIMBE Fellows help revolutionize medicine, engineering and related fields that enhance and extend the lives of people around the world.

Anderson’s research centers on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain, including functional MRI and diffusion tensor imaging. He received a Ph.D. in physics from Yale University in 1990.

Jansen’s research interests include laser-tissue interaction, cellular effects of laser-induced stimuli, application of light, lasers and optical technology in medicine and biology. He completed a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering in 1994 at the University of Texas- Austin.
