Ameer Elected Fellow of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers

Guillermo Ameer, the Daniel Hale Williams Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Surgery has been elected Fellow of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers.

AIChE is the world’s leading organization for chemical engineering professionals, with more than 50,000 members worldwide. Its mission is to promote excellence in chemical engineering education and global practice. Professor Ameer will receive his plaque and a pin “in recognition and appreciation of superior attainments, valuable contributions, and service to Chemical Engineering” at the AIChE Fellows Breakfast on October 31, 2017, in Minneapolis. Fellows are elite members who have practiced chemical engineering for more than 25 years and made significant contributions to the profession. Upon recommendation of the AIChE Admissions Committee, the Board of Directors elects five to eight AIChE members to the rank of Fellow each year, less than 3% of the membership. This highly selective process highlights the outstanding achievement made by Professor Ameer.  Professor Ameer is also a Fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering and Fellow of the Biomedical Engineering Society.

A second honor:

Dr. Ameer was selected as one of 3 inaugural plenary speakers of the Master Scientists Lecture in Regenerative Engineering at the Annual Meeting of the National Organization for the Professional Advancement of Black Chemists and Chemical Engineers (NOBCChE).
