The American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) has announced the induction of Daniel W. Pack, Ph.D., Ashland Inc. Chair in Chemical Engineering to its College of Fellows. Pack was nominated, reviewed and elected by peers and members of the College of Fellows for pioneering contributions in the mechanistic understanding and improved performance of controlled-release drug delivery systems and polymeric gene delivery materials.
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 April 9. Pack was inducted along with 156 colleagues who make up the AIMBE College of Fellows Class of 2018.
Pack joined the UK College of Engineering in 2012.
