AIMBE’s Mission

The American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) is the authoritative voice and advocate for the value of medical and biological engineering to society. It is an organization of leaders in medical and biological engineering, consisting of academic, industrial, professional society councils and elected fellows.
AIMBE’s mission includes communicating objectively with and responding to US and state government agencies, as well as lawmakers. We hope to contribute to public policy making that benefit the public.
Working towards greater translational research and innovation, promoting inter-society relationships, as well as inspiring the young future leaders of the MBE community are all part of what we do.
We believe that recognizing and honoring those who have made significant contributions to humanity through MBE can help educate the public on how MBE affects all of us.


AIMBE’s College of Fellows is comprised of around 1,500 individuals who have made significant contributions to the medical and biological engineering (MBE) community in academia, industry, government, and education that have transformed the world.


AIMBE’s 110 member universities offering biological and engineering sciences focus on developing and applying new knowledge about biology and engineering in ways that benefit humankind – in fields ranging from medicine to agriculture and beyond.


AIMBE’s sixteen scientific organizations in medical and biological engineering coordinate activities of member societies with the activities of academia, government, the health care sector, industry and the public and private biomedical communities.


Members of the Industry Council – the companies and key corporate leaders of the bioengineering revolution – identify and act on common interests that will further advance medical and biological engineering and enhance public health and welfare.
