New biomedical engineering chair earns high honors
Date:2/25/2010

llege's longstanding biomedical program into a department, Akay has many goals in his new role at UH. In addition to increasing the visibility of the department, he anticipates adding as many as 12 faculty in the next five years, creating a distinguished lecture series, enhancing the program's offerings with a Ph.D. option in addition to existing bachelor's and master's degree tracks, and stimulating research collaborations with the Texas Medical Center.

Akay's endowed chair position is funded by the John S. Dunn Research Foundation and was created to help lead research initiatives at the university, as well as play a prominent role in the Institute for Biomedical Imaging Science the research partnership formed by UH, The Methodist Hospital and Weill Cornell Medical College. Akay says a significant part of this includes establishing a health care focused academic curriculum and entrepreneurship environment that meet the demands and requirements of the ever-changing global economy that influences health care technology, management and delivery. He plans to develop new academic and research fields that include biomedical imaging, neural and cognitive engineering, and genomics and proteomics science and engineering.

"Developments in science, engineering and technology have stimulated interdisciplinary research and collaborations among engineers, physicians, computer scientists and biologists," Akay said at a recent public gathering. "We are in the midst of these scientific and technological advancements, and it is an exciting time to be in the biomedical field."

Akay is a native of Turkey who earned his Ph.D. from Rutgers University in 1990. He was most recently a professor and former interim chair at Arizona State University's Harrington Department of Bioengineering before coming to UH in January 2010.
