The American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) has announced the induction of Thomas D. Dziubla, Ph.D., to its College of Fellows. Dziubla was nominated, reviewed and elected by peers and members of the College of Fellows for “seminal contributions to biomaterials and advanced drug delivery, establishing the field of biomaterials capable of regulating oxidative stress.”
Election to the AIMBE College of Fellows is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to a medical and biological engineer. The College of Fellows comprises 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."
A formal induction ceremony was held during the AIMBE Annual Meeting at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C. on March 25. Dziubla was inducted along with 156 colleagues who make up the AIMBE College of Fellows Class of 2019.
Dziubla joined the UK College of Engineering in 2006. He will become chair of the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering on July 1.
