Internationally recognized BME professor to join University of Texas as visiting scholar
Date:6/27/2011

Professor Ali Khademhosseini, a bioengineer who is internationally regarded for his research and contributions in the area of biomedical microdevices and biomaterials, will join The University of Texas at Austin's Department of Biomedical Engineering as a Donald D. Harrington Fellow and visiting scholar for the fall 2011 semester.

Khademhosseini is an associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and holds additional appointments at the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences Technology and at Brigham & Women's Hospital. He has published almost 150 refereed publications and has been cited almost 4,000 times in just eight years. He is the second most-cited biomedical engineering faculty member in a U.S. university in the last five years. In 2007, he was named by Technology Review magazine as one of the top young innovators under the age of 35 for his development of "living legos," which can be used to make artificial organs.

"Dr. Khademhosseini's research in biomaterials, drug delivery and tissue engineering is leading to significant cost and time savings and, ultimately, to faster treatment discovery," said Cockrell School of Engineering Dean Gregory L. Fenves. "His presence on our campus will be a great asset to our faculty and students. I'm grateful for the generosity of the Harrington family, whose commitment to higher education has helped make this possible."

Created by Sybil B. Harrington as a tribute to her late husband, the Donald D. Harrington Fellows Program is one of the most well-endowed visiting scholar and graduate fellow programs in the nation, and the most prestigious at The University of Texas at Austin. The program selects only five Fellows each academic year and is designed to attract outstanding faculty that are near the beginning of their professional careers.

"It is very exciting to be selected as a Harrington fellow. In particular, I am looking forward to interacting with UT Austin's world-r
