Hilt Inducted into AIMBE College of Fellows

On April 4, the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) inducted J. Zach Hilt to its College of Fellows. Membership in the College of Fellows consists of the top two percent of medical and biological engineers in the country. Hilt was elected by peers and members of the College for pioneering contributions to bionanotechnology, specifically the development of nanocomposite hydrogels as remotely controlled biomaterials and analyte-responsive drug delivery systems. The formal ceremony took place during AIMBE’s 25th Annual Meeting at the National Academy of Sciences Great Hall in Washington, DC. Hilt is a three-time winner of the department’s outstanding teacher award and is also the faculty advisor for the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) student organization. He joined UK in 2004 after receiving his Ph.D. from The University of Texas at Austin.
