Jianping Fu, Professor of Mechanical Engineering, of Biomedical Engineering, and of Cell and Developmental Biology, has been elected to the International Academy of Medical and Biological Engineering (IAMBE), class of 2023. Fellows of the IAMBE “are recognized for their outstanding contributions to the profession of medical and biological engineering.”
Dr. Fu’s research contributions have been recognized by more than 30 institutional, national, and international awards and honors, including the National Science Foundation CAREER Award (2012), the Rising Star Award from the Biomedical Engineering Society (2016), and the Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (2022).
His current research focuses on mechanobiology, stem cell bioengineering, developmental bioengineering, microfluidics and BioMEMS. Dr. Fu and his co-workers’ research on modeling human development using human stem cells has contributed significantly to the emerging field of “Artificial Embryos,” which was selected by the MIT Technology Review as “10 Breakthrough Technologies of 2018.”
“I am very delighted to be elected to the International Academy of Medical and Biological Engineers (IAMBE), class of 2023,” Dr. Fu said. “I feel honored to become a member of IAMBE, which includes many colleagues who I have admired for a long time.”
