Jerry L. Prince to be Inducted into the Medical and Biological Engineering Elite
WASHINGTON, D.C.— The American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) has announced the pending induction of Jerry L. Prince, Ph.D., William B. Kouwenhoven Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering/Whiting School of Engineering, Johns Hopkins University, to its College of Fellows. Dr. Prince was nominated, reviewed, and elected by peers and members of the College of Fellows for outstanding contributions to biomedical imaging and image analysis.
The College of Fellows is comprised of the top two percent of medical and biological engineers in the country. The most accomplished and distinguished engineering and medical school chairs, research directors, professors, innovators, and successful entrepreneurs, comprise the College of Fellows.
A formal induction ceremony will be held during AIMBE’s 25th Annual Meeting at the National Academy of Sciences Great Hall in Washington, DC on April 4, 2016. Dr. Prince will be inducted along with 160 colleagues who make up the AIMBE College of Fellows Class of 2016.
