Professor Herbert F. Voigt (BME)

Our dear colleague and friend Herb Voigt passed away suddenly on Thursday, January 25. Herb was one of the first hires of then-Chairman Steve Colburn in 1981, and was part of a small team that built the department from scratch. Among his many honors, Herb is the only person to have served as President of our three prominent national societies:

  • The BMES, our technical society
  • AIMBE, our policy society
  • AEMB, our honor society

Herb was a unique contributor to BU BME, and we miss him dearly. You can read more about his career in a recent article in BU Today
