HEMI Fellow Muyinatu ‘Bisi’ Bell has been selected as a 2019 Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellow in Physics. Professor Bell is an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Department of Biomedical Engineering. Prof. Bell leads a highly interdisciplinary research program that integrates optics, acoustics, robotics, and electronics to engineer and deploy innovative biomedical imaging systems that address unmet clinical needs. She is the director of the Photoacoustic and Ultrasonic Systems Engineering (PULSE) Lab, and the technologies developed in her lab have applications in neurosurgical navigation, cardiovascular disease, women’s health, and cancer detection and treatment. Dr. Bell is additionally interested in utilizing these novel technologies to investigate fundamental science questions surrounding the limits of laser-tissue interactions and their effect on tissue mechanical properties derived from acoustic measurements.
The Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship is awarded annually to young researchers based on their potential to make substantial contributions to their fields and their distinguished performance.
Congratulations to Prof. Bell on her achievement!
