Danny Bluestein, a professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, has been elected a fellow of the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES). His award-winning work tackles the dynamics of flow and cellular transport in blood recirculating devices and the diseased cardiovascular system. He is also director of the Biofluids Research Group at Stony Brook University.
BMES fellows demonstrate exceptional achievements and experience in the field of biomedical engineering and are encouraged to continue to pursue leadership within the society and to further improve the future of BMES and biomedical engineering.
“Professor Bluestein’s work — combining in silico computer simulations with benchtop lab testing — exemplifies the big ideas that will transform our lives and have a profound impact on our world, so I congratulate him on this worthy distinction,” said Stony Brook University President Samuel L. Stanley Jr. “The technologies he is creating have the potential to revolutionize how we treat patients and deliver healthcare.”
“I am thrilled that Danny’s innovative scientific contributions have been recognized in this exemplary fashion,” said Stony Brook University Provost Michael A. Bernstein. “My hearty congratulations to Danny on the occasion of his election to the Biomedical Engineering Society.”
“Danny’s transformative research on valve replacement devices and cardiovascular prostheses is not only groundbreaking, it is lifesaving, and an important example of the multidisciplinary work between engineering and medicine here at Stony Brook,” said College of Engineering and Applied Sciences Dean Fotis Sotiropoulos.
Professor Bluestein will be recognized at the October BMES Annual Meeting in a special ceremony honoring the Class of 2017 fellows.
