Srikantan Nagarajan, PhD Inducted into Medical and Biological Engineering Elite

Srikantan Nagarajan, PhD has been inducted into the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) College of Fellows. This is among one of the highest professional distinctions given to a medical and biological engineer. Dr. Nagarajan was nominated, reviewed and elected by peers and members of the College of Fellows based on the following:

"Outstanding contributions to electromagnetic imaging of brain activity, multimodal brain imaging, brain plasticity, and speech neuroscience."

The College of Fellows is made up of the top two percent of medical and biological engineers. According to AIMBE, College membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to "engineering and medicine research, practice, or education" and to "the pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of medical and biological engineering, or developing/implementing innovative approaches to bioengineering education."

As a result of health concerns due to COVID-19, the AIMBE Annual Meeting scheduled for March 29-30 was cancelled. Dr. Nagarajan was inducted remotely along with 156 colleagues who make up the AIMBE College of Fellows Class of 2020. He joins elite company including three Nobel Prize laureates, 18 Fellows having received the Presidential Medal of Science and/or Technology and Innovation, and 173 also inducted to the National Academy of Engineering, 84 inducted to the National Academy of Medicine and 37 inducted to the National Academy of Science.

Dr. Nagarajan is a professor in the UC San Francisco Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging. He has joint appointments in the Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences and in the Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery at UCSF. With special expertise in biomedical engineering and integrative neuroscience, Dr. Nagarajan has multiple research interests. His current translational research program includes conducting multimodal brain imaging studies in people with autism, dementia, tinnitus, brain tumors, epilepsy, traumatic brain injury (TBI), schizophrenia, asymmetric hearing loss, stroke and voice disorders. He has published over 200 peer-reviewed articles, numerous conference papers and several book chapters, and he has co-authored two books with Dr. Kensuke Sekihara.
