Stefan Duma, the Harry Wyatt Professor of Engineering and interim director of the Institute for Critical Technology and Applied Science, has been named a Fellow of the Biomedical Engineering Society, or BMES.
Duma is the first BMES Fellow at Virginia Tech. The award recognizes society members who have demonstrated exceptional achievements in biomedical engineering and a record of membership and participation in the society; fewer than 150 of the society’s more than 7,000 members have been selected for this honor.
“This year's class truly exemplifies what it means to be a BMES Fellow. In addition to conducting groundbreaking research, BMES Fellows are leaders in education, promoting diversity and supporting all fields of science,” BMES President Lori Setton said in a statement.
