The 2018 CFE Media Engineering Leaders Under 40 are in a class by themselves, but they also have plenty of experience in a class. These 30 manufacturing professionals are by far the best educated group we've recognized since the program began almost a decade ago. 


Falling out of love with science: AIMBE exec presents at BIOE Seminar Series
NIH-funded research has produced 15 of the 21 most important drugs in the past 25 years. It’s produced almost every major innovative vaccine. It has won 93 Nobel Prizes, reduced the number of heart attacks by 60 percent, and helped scientists to invent one-third of commercially patented medical applications. Yet support for federally funded research continues to plummet. “America is losing its passion for science,” said Milan Yager, executive director of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering, who visited campus last month as the special guest for the Richard and Loan Hill Department of Bioengineering’s first seminar of the academic year. During his session, Yager talked about the critical need for the U.S. government’s…
