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.

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.
