The American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) has announced the induction of Nozomi Nishimura, associate professor in the Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering at Cornell, to its College of Fellows.

Election to the AIMBE College of Fellows is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to medical and biological engineers, comprised of the top two percent of engineers in these fields. College 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."

Nishimura was nominated, reviewed, and elected by peers and members of the College of Fellows “for outstanding innovations in optical methods for intravital studies to advance the understanding of microscale physiology.”

A formal induction ceremony was held during the AIMBE Annual Event at the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel in Arlington, Virginia on March 25, 2024. Nishimura was inducted along with 162 colleagues who make up the AIMBE College of Fellows Class of 2024.
