Ching-Long Lin, associate professor of mechanical and industrial engineering in the University of Iowa College of Engineering and associate faculty research engineer at the IIHR-Hydroscience & Engineering, has been awarded a three-year, $916,909 National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant to develop a digital human lung.



The ATS is committed to disseminating the latest advances, nationally and internationally, in the fields of lung disease, sleep disorders and critical care medicine. The International Conference is the Society's most visible activity. This annual conference has become the premier, international forum for physicians and scientists who work in pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine. The 2006 San Diego International Conference will be held May 19-24 in San Diego, California. http://www.thoracic.org/



Joseph Reinhardt, associate professor of biomedical engineering and Milan Sonka, professor of electrical and computer engineering, have been elected Fellows of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering in Washington, D.C. Their nomination recognizes them for outstanding achievements in medical and biological engineering. A formal induction ceremony was held during the Institute's Annual Event in Washington, D.C. in March. BME News




University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics is participating in the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST) sponsored by the National Cancer Institute. The trial is an eight-year research study for men and women at risk for lung cancer. For more information call UI Health Care Cancer Center Information at 800-237-1225.



Medical Imaging File Archive Recovery - MIFAR - is a set of software tools for storing medical image data along with other associated post-image processing files, physiologic records, and lab notes.





IIHR Graduate Research Assistant Xiaoyi Liu and IIHR Graduate student Piotr Lewandowski received Outstanding Student Paper Awards from the Atmospheric Sciences Section of the American Geophysical Union (AGU).
