UCLA MAE Professor Eric Pei-Yu Chiou was elected to the College of Fellows at the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE). The AIMBE College of Fellows represents the most accomplished and distinguished medical and biological engineers responsible for innovation and discovery.
AIMBE is a nonprofit, honorific society that serves as the authoritative voice and advocate for the value of medical and biological engineering to society. It is an organization of leaders in their fields, consisting of academic, industrial, and professional society councils; and the individually-elected members of the College of Fellows.
As a result of Chiou’s important contributions to his field, an AIMBE Fellow nominated him for membership. Chiou’ nomination was peer-reviewed by the College of Fellows Selection Committee. The entire College of Fellows then voted in support of Chiou’s nomination. Chiou’s election now makes him eligible to become a member of a select group of the top 2% of medical and biological engineering professionals.
Chiou will be inducted at AIMBE’s 2017 Annual Event, March 19-20, 2017, in Washington, DC. The induction of the Class of 2017 will occur on Monday, March 20, at the National Academy of Sciences.
