AIMBE is the authoritative voice and advocate for the value of medical and biological engineering to society. It is an organization of leaders in medical and biological engineering, consisting of academic, industrial, professional society councils and elected fellows. AIMBE’s mission includes communicating objectively with and responding to U.S. and state government agencies as well as lawmakers.
