Pakistani national Muhammad Zaman was selected as the 2013 recipient of Early Career Achievement Award by Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS), Boston University’s website reported.
EMBS is the world’s largest international society of biomedical engineers.
Zaman will be honoured for his key contributions in developing novel quantitative experimental and computational models of tumour development, growth and metastasis, and new engineering tools to address high impact global health challenges at an awards presentation during the opening ceremony of the EMBS annual conference in July in Osaka, Japan.
A BU faculty member since 2009, Zaman heads the Cellular and Molecular Dynamics Lab, which engineers new experimental and computational technologies for major healthcare problems in both the developing and developed world, including probing the mechanisms of cancer metastasis.
Furthermore, Zaman is developing cheap and user-friendly diagnostics and analysis toolkits to address global health challenges.
