WASHINGTON, D.C.—The American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) has announced the induction of Norma Alcantar, Ph.D., Professor of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering, University of South Florida, to its College of Fellows.
Election to the AIMBE College of Fellows is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to a medical and biological engineer. The College of Fellows is comprised of the top two percent of medical and biological engineers. College membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to “engineering and medicine research, practice, or education” and to “the pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of medical and biological engineering, or developing/implementing innovative approaches to bioengineering education.”
Dr. Alcantar was nominated, reviewed, and elected by peers and members of the College of Fellows for “outstanding contributions in providing drinking water for low-income communities and contributions to disrupting amyloid fibril formation in Alzheimers Research.”
