Kalina Hristova and Hai-Quan Mao, both professors in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, have been elected to the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE)’s College of Fellows.
AIMBE Fellows are considered the most distinguished and accomplished leaders in the fields of medical and biological engineering, and are chosen for making contributions to those fields that have the potential to change the world.
Hristova, who has a secondary appointment in the Department of Biomedical Engineering and who is a member of the Institute for NanoBioTechnology, has been recognized for the development of quantitative methods revealing the mechanism of activation of membrane receptors implicated in human cancers.
Mao, who is associate director of the Institute for NanoBioTechnology and has a secondary appointment in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, was recognized for outstanding contributions to nanomaterials engineering for therapeutic delivery and regenerative medicine. He also is a core faculty member of the Johns Hopkins Translational Tissue Engineering Center.
Both will be inducted at the AIMBE’s Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. this week.
