The American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) has announced the induction of John P. Mugler, III, PhD, Director of Medical Imaging Research, Professor of Radiology and Medical Imaging and Professor of Biomedical Engineering in the Department of Radiology and Medical Imaging at the University of Virginia, to its College of Fellows.
Election to the AIMBE College of Fellows is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to a medical and biological engineer. The College of Fellows is comprised of 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.”
Dr. Mugler was nominated, reviewed, and elected by peers and members of the College of Fellows for “outstanding contributions to the development of rapid imaging techniques which are now used in routine clinical MRI practice.”
A formal induction ceremony was held during the AIMBE Annual Meeting at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, DC on March 25, 2019.
