Danielle Benoit, Lorry Lokey Chair of the Department of Bioengineering at the Knight Campus, has been elected to the 2023 class of Biomedical Engineering Society Fellows.
“This is a significant recognition in our field for individuals who have demonstrated exceptional achievement and impact in biomedical engineering,” said Robert Guldberg, Vice President and Robert and Leona DeArmond Executive Director of the Knight Campus.
The Biomedical Engineering Society awards Fellow status to members who demonstrate exceptional achievements and experience in the field of biomedical engineering and hold a record of membership and participation in the Society.
An NIH- and NSF-funded researcher, Benoit specializes in the design of materials to improve disease treatments and expedite recovery from injuries. Her work has provided insights into the translation of tissue engineering strategies for bone healing and development of tissue models to discover new drugs and drug delivery systems.
BMES will honor Benoit and other members of the 2023 Class of Fellows during the 2023 BMES Annual Meeting on Thursday, October 12.
