Princess Imoukhuede, PhD, Hunter and Dorothy Simpson Endowed Chair and professor of Bioengineering at the UW School of Medicine, received the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) Professional Impact Award for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. The award recognizes an AIMBE fellow who has made significant contributions to the progress of underrepresented populations in medical and biological engineering.

Imoukhuede’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion is expressed in many aspects of her work. In addition to her bench and computational research, she has been engaged in research that applies an intersectional woman-centered approach to investigate the experiences of women of color in engineering. Her research explored race and gender in STEM culture, shedding light on how women of color navigate unique challenges, yielding papers, conference talks and continued research by others.
