Rheumatologist Christopher Sims, M.D., Honored by Induction Into Prestigious AIMBE “College of Fellows,” Comprised of the Top 2 percent of Medical and Biological Engineers

Being inducted into the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering’s (AIMBE) “College of Fellows,” is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to medical and biological engineers, and serves as a distinction that honors those who have made outstanding contributions to "engineering and medicine research, practice, or education."

Dr. Sim's  research is based on a multidisciplinary and translational effort that brings to bear principles and techniques from chemistry, engineering, and medicine.  A common thread in his research is the development and application of new technologies for biomedical research with a goal for clinical translation.

A formal induction ceremony was held during the AIMBE Annual Meeting at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C. on April 9, 2018.
