Biomedical Engineering Professor Keith Cook has been inducted into College of Fellows of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE). Cook was nominated, reviewed, and elected by peers and members of the College of Fellows for significant contributions to the development of artificial lungs.
The AIMBE College of Fellows is comprised of the top two percent of medical and biological engineers, and election to it is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to a medical and biological engineer. 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, DC on April 9, 2018. Cook was inducted along with 156 colleagues who make up the AIMBE College of Fellows Class of 2018.
