Stabler named BMES Fellow

Dr. Cherie Stabler, professor & Integra LifeSciences Term Professor, has been named a 2021 Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) Fellow.

The BMES awards Fellow status to members who have demonstrated exceptional achievement while maintaining a consistent record of participation within the society. It’s a designation generally given to some of the most accomplished leaders in the field of biomedical engineering.

“It is a great honor to be elected as a BMES Fellow and to be included in such a prestigious group,” said Stabler.

She was selected for her:

  • Exceptional achievements and experience in the field of biomedical engineering.
  • Leadership and service to the Biomedical Engineering Society.

Stabler’s research centers on engineering translational biomaterial platforms for cell-based therapies, particularly Type 1 diabetes. Specifically, her research seeks to develop bioactive materials capable of: protecting cells from immunological attack; providing 3-D support of the transplanted cells; presenting cues for guiding positive host cell remodeling; and releasing therapeutic agents. Through the fabrication of novel biomaterials capable of actively interfacing with the host, she seeks to optimize the graft environment to favor the long-term survival and function of the implanted cells.

Congratulations, Dr. Stabler!
