Associate Dean, Research and Faculty Affairs and professor of materials science and engineering Dr. Caroline Schauer has been elected a Fellow of the 2021 Class of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) . She was nominated for “outstanding contributions to natural polymer processing into nanoscale fibers and yarns for tissue engineering applications.”

“I am truly honored to be part of this distinguished group,” Schauer said. “The Natural Polymers and Photonics Group at Drexel University has made great advances in the field of natural polymer nanofibers and this is a notable tribute to our hard work.”

Election to the AIMBE College of Fellows is among the highest professional distinctions given to a medical and biological engineer and comprises the top two percent of medical and biological engineers in the country. Membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to “engineering and medicine research, practice, or education” and to “the pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of medical and biological engineering, or developing/implementing innovative approaches to bioengineering education,” according to the organization.

Schauer will be inducted in a virtual ceremony during the 2021 AIMBE Annual Event on March 26, where newly inducted Fellows will have their name and citation read.
