AIMBE, or the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering,is a non-profit advocacy organization dedicated to improving lives through medical and biological engineering. Dr. Baneyx joins 20 other AIMBE fellows from UW Bioengineering, as well as a distinguished group of more than 1,000 other fellows from academia, industry and government who have made significant contributions to bioengineering research, industrial practice and education.

This year’s fellows will be recognized at AIMBE’s Annual Event, to be held March 15-17, 2015 in Arlington, Virginia.
