Ankur Singh, an associate professor in Georgia Tech’s George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering and the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Emory University and Georgia Tech, has been elected to join the distinguished College of Fellows of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) this year. Fellows represent just the top 2 percent of medical and biological engineers in the nation, according to AIMBE. His research lab creates biomaterials-based immune tissues to mimic the structure and function of lymph nodes so they can study interactions between cells and cell decisionmaking. In 2020, Singh was awarded a $2.3 Million National Cancer Institute Grant for Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma Research.
