Lingchong You has been elected to the College of Fellows at the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE). You, a professor of biomedical engineering at Duke University, was cited for “pioneering the engineering of spatiotemporal dynamics in single cells and cell populations for basic biological understanding and practical applications.”

With You’s election, Duke Biomedical Engineering is home to 25 AIMBE Fellows, which represent the top 2 percent of accomplished and distinguished medical and biological engineers responsible for innovation and discovery. Members’ nominations are peer-reviewed by a selection committee and then voted on by the entire College of Fellows.

You’s research focuses on computational systems biology and synthetic biology, including mathematical modeling of cellular networks, mechanisms of information processing by gene networks, and the design, modeling and construction of robust gene networks for applications in engineering and medicine.

AIMBE is a nonprofit, honorific society that serves as the authoritative voice and advocate for the value of medical and biological engineering to society. A formal induction ceremony was held during the AIMBE Annual Meeting at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, DC, on March 25, 2019. You was inducted with 156 colleagues who comprised the AIMBE College of Fellows Class of 2019.
