Mariah Hahn, professor of biomedical engineering, was elected based on her achievements in soft tissue regeneration and inflammatory disease modeling. Juergen Hahn, professor and department head of biomedical engineering, was elected for his contributions to systems biology of metabolic and signaling networks and applications to autism spectrum disorder. 



The BMES grade of fellow is a professional distinction granted by the Board of Directors upon a BMES member. This individual has demonstrated impactful achievements and has made significant contributions within the biomedical engineering community. They also have demonstrated considerable leadership within their field of interest and served within the society.



This honor complements Mariah Hahn’s earlier distinctions, which include election as a fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE), an NSF CAREER Award, and the American Heart Association Scientist Development Award. Similarly, Juergen Hahn is also a fellow of AIMBE and of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), and a recipient of AIChE’s CAST Outstanding Young Researcher Award.



The Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) is the professional society for biomedical engineering and bioengineering. Founded in early 1968, the Society now boasts over 5,000 members and is growing, rapidly. It is BMES’ mission to promote and enhance knowledge and education in biomedical engineering and bioengineering worldwide and its utilization for human health and well-being.
