Affiliated Faculty

The NYCBE has an internationally recognized faculty of more than 30 researchers in the areas of arterial fluid mechanics and transport, cartilage and ligament mechanics, tissue-biomaterial interaction, bioheat transfer, microvascular exchange, bone adaptation, renal modeling, neural engineering, drug delivery, laser applications in biomedicine, quantitative image analysis for diagnostic pathology, biomedical signal processing and instrumentation, and pattern recognition and vision.

The outstanding quality and diversity of the faculty are reflected in their society affiliations, membership on select panels of the National Institutes of Health, National Research Council, NASA, and editorships and associate editorships of major journals. The faculty have won many of the most prestigious awards and honors in fields related to biomedical engineering, including election to the National Academy of Science, National Academy of Engineering, and Institute of Medicine.
