Professor Paul Barbone (ME, MSE) and Professor W. Clem Karl (ECE, SE) have been elected to the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) College of Fellows.
To recognize their contributions to engineering and society, Professor Xin Zhang (ME, ECE, BME, MSE) is the recipient of this year’s Charles DeLisi Award and Lecture, and Assistant Professor Wilson Wong (BME) has received the Early Career Excellence Award.
The College of Engineering has established a new, interdisciplinary Center for Autonomous and Robotics Systems (CARS) that will build upon the expertise and experience of the current faculty and advanced facilities.
As bacteria grow increasingly resistant to antibiotics, scientists are on the hunt for a fast way test how the bacteria infecting a patient will respond to a particular antibiotic. Professor Kamil Ekinci (ME, MSE), Assistant Professor Chuanhua Duan (ME, MSE) and postdoctoral fellow Vural Kara, along with collaborators from the BU School of Medicine, have developed a new rapid antibiotic susceptibility test that works by measuring the movements of bacteria
Associate Professor Douglas Densmore (ECE, BME), doctoral student Luis Ortiz (MCBB), Research Fellow Marilene Pavan (ECE), and software engineers Josh Timmons and Lloyd McCarthy from Lattice Automation (a software company Densmore co-founded) have demonstrated the usefulness of an automated pipetting robot paired with a novel software tool through a Journal of Visualized Experiments video.
Assistant Professor Wilson Wong’s (BME) research has been chosen by STAT, a Boston-based, health-and-science-focused news website, to participate in its bracket of scientific research projects called STAT Madness.
In two recent papers published in Physical Review Letters, Associate Professor Douglas Holmes (ME, MSE) outlines two different concepts that push forward our understanding of how soft matter behaves under instable conditions like growth.
Professor Herbert F. Voigt, a long-time Biomedical Engineering faculty member who helped set the department on a course that would lead it to elite national stature, died suddenly on Jan. 25. He was 65.
Professor David Boas (BME, ECE), Professor Selim Ünlü (ECE, MSE), and Associate Professor Luca Dal Negro (ECE, MSE, Physics) have been elected as Fellows of The Optical Society (OSA).
