Faculty elected to American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering

Seven School of Medicine faculty members are among the new class of inductees to the AIMBE College of Fellows.

Seven faculty members at the School of Medicine have been elected to the college of fellows of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering.  

Membership in the institute’s college of fellows honors researchers who have made outstanding contributions to engineering and medicine research, practice or education.

The newly inducted member from the medical school are:

  • Jennifer Cochran, PhD, chair and associate professor of bioengineering, focuses on protein-based drug discovery for applications including oncology and regenerative medicine, and the development of new technology for high-throughput protein analysis and engineering.
  • Heike Daldrup-Link, MD, professor of radiology, specializes in pediatric radiology and molecular imaging. Her research focuses on the development of new pediatric molecular imaging techniques.
  • Alison Marsden, PhD, associate professor of pediatrics and of bioengineering, focuses on developing computational methods to improve the surgical care and treatment planning of patients with cardiovascular disease, as well as to study cardiovascular-disease progression and optimize heart devices.
  • Carla Pugh, MD, PhD, professor of surgery, draws on the fields of simulation, sensors, assessment and big data to investigate the science of touch as it applies to clinical skill acquisition.
  • Jianghong Rao, PhD, professor of radiology, focuses on the design, synthesis and evaluation of new molecular probes for imaging and diagnostics, and on the manipulation of targeted biomolecules in normal and diseased states.
  • Daniel Rubin, MD, professor of biomedical data science, of radiology and of medicine, uses artificial intelligence methods in imaging in combination with clinical and molecular data for discovery in biomedicine and for developing clinical decision support applications to enable precision health.
  • Joseph Wu, MD, PhD, professor of medicine and of radiology and director of the Stanford Cardiovascular Institute, uses stem cells and genomics to elucidate mechanisms of heart disease, accelerate drug discovery and implement precision cardiovascular medicine.
