Wednesday, March 6, 2013

Ching-Long Lin, professor of mechanical and industrial engineering and faculty research engineer at IIHR Hydroscience & Engineering, has been elected and inducted into the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) College of Fellows. AIMBE is a Washington, D.C.-based advocacy organization that was established to provide the collective expertise of biomedical engineers to federal policy-makers and other government agencies.

This honor is the result of Lin’s important contributions in the fields of multiscale high-fidelity imaging-based modeling and high-performance parallel computation and simulation of biological systems; he was nominated and elected by his peers. The AIMBE College of Fellows is a select group made up of the nation’s most accomplished medical and biological engineers.

“I am proud to have received this recognition for my research,” Lin says, “and I was excited to attend the induction ceremony at the National Academy of Sciences.”

Founded in 1991, AIMBE advocates on issues impacting the medical and biological engineering community, and serves as a comprehensive and objective voice for the profession.
