Introducing ASME's "TEC Talks", a monthly one-hour webinar series for ASME members, brought to you by the Technical and Engineering Communities (TEC) Council, that focuses on topical subject matter in a variety of mechanical engineering disciplines represented by ASME's Technical Divisions.
TEC Talks will be presented in various formats - presentations, panels, roundtable discussions - followed by a robust Q&A session. The subject matter will consist of topical issues, challenges, or new technologies within the various specialty areas of ASME Divisions.
Series Debut: Thursday, February 25, 2021, at 12:00pm ET
Presented by ASME's Bioengineering Division:
"Developing Medical Devices for Combat Medics and Civilian First-Responders"
Featured Presenter: R. Lyle Hood, Department of Mechanical Engineering, UT San Antonio
Hello BED members,We are launching a new ASME Bioengineering Division (BED) mentoring initiative and need volunteer MENTORS. Specifically, we need mentors that work in industry and other non-academic settings. Most of our students enter the industrial workforce yet have minimal interactions prior to graduation. We would love to change that!For our pilot year, we are keeping the program simple: a one year commitment, with 2-3 interactions during that time, which can be virtual or in-person. We can also provide topics and resources for your discussions (if desired).If you are interested in helping our new mentoring initiative, please fill out this 2 minute survey:https://lnkd.in/eUPX82AThank you for helping to make this initiative successful, and please feel free to repost or circulate to any colleagues in industry or academia.Regards,ASME Bioengineering Division Executive Committee
The Fall Bioengineering Division Newsletter is now available.
Nominations for the 2018 Bioengineering Division Awards are now open. Please submit the relevant nomination form to the Chair of the appropriate Honors Committee no later than Sept. 1, 2017. In preparing nomination packages, please note that Honors committee members cannot submit a candidate or provide a letter of support to the committee they are serving. For all awards, candidates must be an active member of the Bioengineering Division. The details of the five awards are as follows.
The Y.C. Fung Young Early Career Award recognizes young investigators who are committed to pursuing research in the field of Bioengineering and have demonstrated significant potential to make substantial contributions to the field of Bioengineering. Candidates must have earned a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in any field of engineering, physics, medicine or life sciences. Candidates must have received their terminal degree less than ten years prior to June 1 of the year the award is conferred. The award was established by the Bioengineering Division in 1985, it was elevated to a Society award in 1988. The award was renamed in 2017.
Chair: Dr. Naomi Chesler (University of Wisconsin) email@example.com
The Savio L-Y. Woo Translational Biomechanics Medal award recognizes a sustained level of meritorious contributions in translating bioengineering research to clinical application, to improve the quality of life. Any member of ASME who has demonstrated a sustained level of outstanding achievement in translating bioengineering findings to the clinical community may be eligible for this medal.
Chair: Dr. James E. Moore (Imperial College): firstname.lastname@example.org
The Van C. Mow Medal is bestowed upon an individual who has demonstrated meritorious contributions to the field of bioengineering through research, education, professional development, leadership in the development of the profession, mentorship to young bioengineers, and with service to the bioengineering community. The individual must have earned a Ph.D. or equivalent degree between ten and twenty years prior to June 1 of the year of the award. The award was established by the Bioengineering Division in 2004.
Chair: Dr. John Bischof (University of Minnesota) email@example.com
The Robert M. Nerem Education and Mentorship is bestowed upon an individual who has demonstrated a sustained level of outstanding achievement in education and mentoring of trainees. Examples of meritorious activities include leadership within the nominee’s institution, mentoring activities that are above and beyond those expected from others employed in similar positions, mentoring activities tailored to meet the needs of the trainees, and innovative mentoring activities. Candidates must have earned a Ph.D. or equivalent terminal degree in any field of engineering, physics, medicine or life sciences. The award was established by the Bioengineering Division in 2017.
Chair: Dr. Sara Wilson (University of Kansas) firstname.lastname@example.org
The H.R. Lissner Medal recognizes outstanding achievements in the field of bioengineering. These achievements may be in the form of (1) significant research contributions in bioengineering; (2) development of new methods of measuring in bioengineering; (3) design of new equipment and instrumentation in bioengineering; (4) educational impact in the training of bioengineers; and/or (5) service to the bioengineering community, in general, and to the Bioengineering Division of ASME, in particular. The H.R. Lissner Award established as a divisional award in 1977. It was upgraded to a society award in 1987.
Chair: Noshir Langrana (Rutgers University) email@example.com
