Tamer S. Ibrahim inducted into AIMBE College of Fellows

John A. Swanson Professor of Bioengineering Tamer S. Ibrahim at the University of Pittsburgh was inducted into the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) College of Fellows at AIMBE’s annual event on March 24, 2024. 

AIMBE Fellows represent the top two percent of medical and biological engineers, including the most accomplished in academia, industry, education, clinical practice, and government. Ibrahim is currently director of the 7 Tesla (7T) Bioengineering Research Program (7TBRP) and co-director of the Bioengineering in Psychiatry (BiP) T32 Training Program, and he works predominantly on ultrahigh field human MRI developments and applications. 

Ibrahim was nominated for these breakthrough innovations with ultrahigh field human MRI and for his transformational impact across neuroimaging research and interdisciplinary training. He joins Interim Chair of Bioengineering Mark Redfern and over thirty current and former Pitt faculty members with this prestigious accolade.



Established in 1991, the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) is a non-profit organization headquartered in Washington, D.C., representing the most accomplished individuals in the fields of medical and biological engineering. No other organization can bring together academia, industry, government, and scientific societies to form a highly influential community advancing medical and biological engineering. AIMBE’s mission is to provide leadership and advocacy in medical and biological engineering for the benefit of society.
