The National Academy of Engineering (NAE) has invited Assistant Professor Muhammad Zaman (BME) to attend the 2011 Japan-America Frontiers of Engineering Symposium (JAFOE). The symposium, to be held June 6-8 in Tsukuba, Japan, will bring together about 60 outstanding engineers (ages 30-45) from U.S. and Japanese companies, universities and government labs to discuss leading edge research and development activities in diverse engineering fields.

“I am incredibly excited to be selected for the bilateral U.S.-Japan Frontiers of Engineering symposium,” said Zaman, whose research is focused at the interface of cell biology, mechanics, systems biology and medicine. “This will be a unique opportunity to interact with leading scientists and engineers from both the U.S. and Japan in multiple areas of my research.”

JAFOE attendees emerge from the symposium with exposure to new methods that can be applied to multiple fields, new research partners and new contacts among the next generation of leaders in engineering.

Zaman was also selected to attend the 2009 NAE Frontiers of Engineering and 2010 NAE Frontiers of Engineering Education symposia; receiving invitations for these events as well as a bilateral symposium is a rare honor.
