Posted on Apr 21, 2017

Congratulations to Department Chair Thomas Grist, MD, FACR, and Vice Chair of Research Scott Reeder, MD, PhD, who were honored as fellows of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington D.C. The AIMBE is a non-profit organization whose goal is to provide leadership and advocacy in medical and biological engineering for the benefit of society. According to the Institute, “The health and value of AIMBE as an advocate for public policy issues related to improving lives through medical and biological engineering is ensured by a College of Fellows comprised of experts in areas such as clinical practice, industrial practice, and education.”

Dr. Grist was recognized for, “outstanding contributions to the development of MR Imaging and MR Angiography techniques,” while Dr. Reeder was recognized for, “outstanding contributions to the development of MR Imaging and Quantitative MRI Biomarkers.”

Fellows are nominated each year by their peers and represent the top 2% of the medical and biological engineering community. They are considered the life-blood of AIMBE and work towards realizing AIMBE’s vision to provide medical and biological engineering innovation for the benefit of humanity. The UW Department of Biomedical Engineering’s Shaoqin Sarah Gong, PhD, was also honored this year. They join 20 previous UW–Madison names, including Guang-Hong Chen, PhD (2015) and Charles Mistretta, PhD (2004), in the AIMBE’s College of Fellows.
