Scott elected as AIMBE fellow
SQI faculty member Evan Scott has been elected to the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) College of Fellows, the AIMBE announced. The College of Fellows comprises the top 2 percent of medical and biological engineers in the U.S.
Scott was recognized for “outstanding contributions to understanding immunological processes contributing to diverse inflammation-driven pathologies, and for therapeutic approaches using biomaterial-based strategies.” He is among 153 fellows, including three other Northwestern University professors, elected in the Class of 2022. They will be formally inducted during AIMBE’s 2022 Annual Event on March 25.
Scott is the Kay Davis Professor and associate professor of biomedical engineering and microbiology-immunology at Northwestern. He applies principles from biomaterials science, nanotechnology, and tissue engineering toward the development of translational immunotherapies that could support the treatment and basic understanding of heart disease, vaccination, and immune dysregulation.
