The 3rd edition of the day-long workshop MedImage 2014 was held December 2014 at the 9th Indian Conference on Computer Vision, Graphics and Image Processing organized at the Indian Institute of Sciences
Dr. Leroy Hood was among 20 professionals honored for their outstanding contributions to engineering during a Medals and Recognitions Ceremony in Amsterdam, Netherlands in August 2014. The ceremony took place in conjunction with the IEEE Sections Congress. IEEE President Roberto J. de Marca served as the Master of Ceremonies,
If you’ve ever wondered why science and math education lag in the United States, EMBS Executive Committee Member Barbara Oakley, has an idea. In part, it’s because students are never allowed a true mastery of science, technology, engineering and math subjects, otherwise known as STEM. This is the argument she makes in a Wall Street
Since its inception in 1963, the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) has been focused on the intersection of engineering and health. EMBS members have embarked on amazing feats of engineering, such as developing sophisticated sensors in clothing capable of monitoring a person’s mental state, or harnessing nanotechnology to delivery drug therapies
We are pleased announce that the November/December 2013 issue of IEEE Pulse has recently won a 2014 Apex Award for Design and Illustration for cover image. APEX 2014 awards were based on excellence in graphic design, editorial content, and the success of the submitted entry in achieving overall communications effectiveness and
The prowess and future of EMBS is directly linked to the vigor, vision and effectiveness of the Technical Committees (TCs). No matter how skilled the society leadership has been, the current impetus cannot be sustained without the solid backing of technical leaders in each of the areas
Every year, dedicated EMBS volunteers put together a series of activities for the annual EMBC specifically aimed at Students and Young Professionals. There are free networking lunches with EMB leaders, workshops to hone soft skills (registration required), sessions for career advice
A biomedical engineering lab at UC Irvine is trying a bold new experiment: crowd-funding a lab project to address lagging rankings of Science Technology Engineering and Mathematic education (STEM) in the United States. Michelle Khine’s Lab at UC Irvine has launched a one-month Kickstarter campaign to produce and develop an “inventor’s kit” meant to engage, enable and empower children to “play” science at an early age…
The IEEE Board of Directors approved the newly elevated Fellows for 2014. Please join us in congratulating our colleagues on this prestigious accomplishment!
