Brito, De Vlaminck named 2022 BMES/CMBE Rising Stars

Meinig School faculty Ilana Brito, Assistant Professor, Mong Family Sesquicentennial Faculty Fellow in Biomedical Engineering, and Associate Professor Iwijn De Vlaminck have been named 2022 Rising Stars by the Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering (CMBE) Special Interest Group (SIG) within the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES). 
CMBE’s Rising Star awards are given to a select group of exceptional junior principal investigators each year. In recognition of their achievements, Brito and De Vlaminck were invited to present and receive their awards at the 2022 CMBE Conference held January 3-7, 2022.
Ilana Brito’s research employs experimental and computational approaches to enhance understanding of microbial ecology and inform current efforts to predict, monitor, and combat antibiotic resistance.  
Iwijn De Vlaminck’s research applies approaches from engineering, biophysics, and computational biology to genomics and medicine with a mission to develop genomics-based medicine technologies to study and diagnose infectious and immune-mediated disease.
The CMBE-SIG brings together researchers with diverse scientific and clinical interests with a common goal of understanding and engineering molecules, cells, their interactions and microenvironments in the pursuit of controlling biological processes and improving the practice of medicine.
