CSL Professor named 2021 Fellow of the International Academy of Medical and Biological Engineering



The International Academy of Medical and Biological Engineering (IAMBE) welcomed and elected 26 Fellows for the Class of 2021.

The IAMBE, affiliated with the International Federation of Medical and Biological Engineering (IFMBE), is made up of Fellows who are recognized for their outstanding contributions to the profession of medical and biological engineering.
