Patricia Flatley Brennan Inducted into Medical and Biological Engineering Elite

April 7, 2020

The American Institute for Medical and Organic Engineering (AIMBE) has declared the induction of Patricia Flatley. Brennan, RN, Ph.D., Director, Nationwide Library of Drugs, Nationwide Institutes of Health and fitness to its Higher education of Fellows.

Election to the AIMBE Higher education of Fellows is among the the greatest expert distinctions accorded to a professional medical and organic engineer. The Higher education of Fellows is comprised of the top rated two p.c of professional medical and organic engineers. Higher education membership honors people who have made superb contributions to “engineering and medication investigate, observe, or education” and to “the revolutionary of new and developing fields of technology, creating significant progress in conventional fields of professional medical and organic engineering, or developing/implementing ground breaking methods to bioengineering education and learning.”

Dr. Brennan was nominated, reviewed, and elected by friends and members of the Higher education of Fellows for “outstanding contributions to biomedical informatics leading to the acceleration of wellbeing treatment technologies to improve affected individual self-management.”

Dr. Brennan is broadly acknowledged for her thirty-calendar year academic occupation transforming wellbeing treatment by way of improvements in home treatment technologies. Coinciding with the emergence of affected individual-centered treatment and shortened healthcare facility stays, her function has extended wellbeing information and facts technologies from the healthcare facility and clinic to the home and neighborhood.

Her function has leveraged innovations in laptop or computer science, telecommunications, and visualization to structure and examine web-based mostly and cell system techniques that support affected individual self-management to minimize social isolation and increase engagement with scientific treatment companies. She has presented structure guidance for affected individual-struggling with laptop or computer systems and produced ground breaking modular architectures for affected individual self-checking. Dr. Brennan serves as a pioneer of immersive virtual truth eventualities that use context-distinct visual cues to speed up structure of technologies that ‘fit’ into the everyday life of clients with intricate, persistent circumstances.

AIMBE Fellows are among the the most distinguished professional medical and organic engineers which include 3 Nobel Prize laureates, eighteen Fellows possessing received the Presidential Medal of Science and/or Technological know-how and Innovation, and 173 also inducted to the Nationwide Academy of Engineering, eighty four inducted to the Nationwide Academy of Drugs and 37 inducted to the Nationwide Academy of Sciences.

The Nationwide Library of Drugs (NLM) is a leader in investigate in biomedical informatics and information science and the world’s biggest biomedical library. NLM conducts and supports investigate in strategies for recording, storing, retrieving, preserving, and communicating wellbeing information and facts. NLM results in methods and instruments that are made use of billions of times every calendar year by millions of individuals to accessibility and analyze molecular biology, biotechnology, toxicology, environmental wellbeing, and wellbeing companies information and facts.
