NTU Provost receives prestigious Imperial College fellowship joining the ranks of top UK scientists
Date:2/14/2013

Professor Freddy Boey, Provost of Nanyang Technological University (NTU) has received the prestigious Faculty of Medicine Fellowship by Imperial College London, for his contribution to biomedical sciences.

The Fellowship was awarded to Prof Boey on Tuesday evening (12 Feb, 6pm London time), at Imperial College's Faculty of Medicine, in recognition of his exceptional achievements in medical technology and his outstanding contributions to the development of the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine - a joint medical school between NTU and Imperial College.

A renowned serial inventor, Prof Boey, had developed many innovative medical devices, which include a customisable hernia mesh, most recently approved for sale by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This NTU-developed hernia mesh is the first such surgical mesh to be passed by the FDA.

Prof Boey, 56, will be joining an illustrious list of Fellows, which include UK's first female professor of surgery, Prof Averil Mansfield; Director of the UK's Medical Research Council (MRC) Dr Pontiano Kaleebu; Professor Dame Sally Davies, the Chief Medical Officer of England and inventor Professor Mark Brian Pepys who was knighted in the 2012 New Year Honours for services to biomedicine.

Imperial's Faculty of Medicine Fellows are elected annually and are awarded to those who have demonstrated outstanding achievements or who have rendered exceptional service to the Faculty. They are also awarded to those of outstanding distinction in the appropriate fields, whom the Faculty wishes to honour.

Prof Boey, who has 25 global patents to his name, has invented breakthrough biomedical devices like the world's smallest piezo heart pump, several types of drug eluting and biodegradable stents as well as a disposable surgical tissue retractor.
