The BMES Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering (CMBE) Special Interest Group (SIG) is soliciting applications for the 2024 CMBE Council Members. Three council members are to be elected this year.

What is the CMBE SIG?
The CMBE SIG brings together researchers with diverse backgrounds in scientific and clinical interests with a common goal of understanding how physical forces control biological processes and a desire to improve the practice of medicine, human and veterinary, through the results of their research. Being a CMBE Council Member is a great opportunity to serve the community, shape the future, and network with outstanding colleagues in the CMBE field.

Seeking applicants
We invite you to be part of a diverse slate of candidates for these three open positions. Candidates should be committed to growing the CMBE SIG as leaders in the cellular molecular bioengineering profession.

  • Applicants must currently hold a faculty position at their university or an industry position.
  • Applicants must commit to the two-year service term.

The voting process
The CMBE Council will consider all nominations and vote on which applicants will be on the ballot. The ballots will then be sent to all CMBE SIG members for election. The three candidates with the most votes will be elected as CMBE SIG Council Members.
