GROWTH FACTORS MARCH 2021

 
 


Dear bioengineering community,

In this issue of Growth Factors newsletter, we are celebrating research and teaching excellence as well as announcing a major milestone for the Carle Illinois College of Medicine.

I'm pleased to share that bioengineering professors Jenny Amos and Sergei Maslov have been elected as 2021 AIMBE Fellows. Professor Rohit Bhargava has been named OSA 2021 Ellis R. Lippincott Award recipient. Furthermore, professor Yurii Vlasov, who is a Founder Professor in electrical and computer engineering and a graduate faculty of bioengineering, has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering. We are so proud of our faculty who continue to make significant contributions in their fields and I invite you to join us in recognizing their tremendous work. 


Warm regards,

Mark A. Anastasio
Department Head
Donald Biggar Willett Professor in Engineering
