Jeffrey L. Duerk, dean of the Case School of Engineering at Case Western Reserve University, has been named a 2015 Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Fellow for contributions to rapid magnetic resonance imaging technologies.
He joins an exclusive group of scholars in this honor: no more than one-tenth of 1 percent of the institute’s total voting membership can be elevated to an IEEE fellow in any one year. With more than 425,000 members, IEEE is the world’s largest professional association for the advancement of technology.
The Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University has announced the 2015 program dates for the Leadership Lab for Women in STEM—an executive education program that provides professional and leadership development for women in technology-driven, male-dominated fields.
The program is designed for women working in STEM fields at all stages of their careers. Guided by expert faculty through three sessions and one-on-one coaching, participants will build skills and gain practical knowledge to help them overcome barriers.
Joseph Mansour, professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, has been named deputy editor-in-chief for the Journal of Medical and Biological Engineering.
The Journal of Medical and Biological Engineering is the official journal of the Taiwanese Society of Biomedical Engineering, and publishes papers related to clinical engineering, biomedical signals, medical imaging, bio-informatics, tissue engineering, and other prominent issues and technical developments in the field.
The Engineers Week Engineering Challenges Carnival is seeking undergraduate and graduate student volunteers to help with the event, which is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 14, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Thwing Ballroom.
Part of the annual Engineers Week celebration, the carnival engages local pre-K through eighth-grade students and their families, encouraging them to learn about science and engineering through demonstrations and hands-on activities.
Anant Madabhushi, professor of biomedical engineering and director of the Center for Computational Imaging and Personalized Diagnostics at Case Western Reserve University, has been invited to serve as associate editor for the Journal of Medical Image Analysis (MedIA), one of the top international journals in computer science.
MedIA publishes original research over the whole spectrum of work relevant to the field of medical and biological image analysis, with special emphasis on efforts related to the applications of computer vision, virtual reality and robotics to biomedical imaging problems.
