Awards and honors in the Engineering Community
Assoc Prof. Marjolein van der Meulen, MAE, has been elected to the College of Fellows of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering. Election to AIMBE is based on "exceptional contributions to medical and biological engineering."
MSE graduate student Marleen Kamperman, a member of the Wiesner research group, was honored at the Materials Research Society (MRS) 2007 Fall Meeting with a graduate student gold medal award. This award is given to students who authored or co-authored symposium papers that exemplified significant and timely research.
