Georgia Tech Faculty Members Influencing Georgia

Primary tabs

Each year, Georgia Trend Magazine announces their "100 Most Influential Georgian's list" and  the 2011 list included Bud Peterson, Georgia Tech's President, for the second year.

In addition to our President, three faculty members from the Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience (IBB) were named to the "100 Most Influential – 'Notables'" list, also for the second year in a row.  Todd McDevitt, associate professor in Biomedical Engineering and the director of the Stem Cell Engineering Center, Bob Nerem, professor in Mechanical Engineering and director of the Georgia Tech and Emory Center for Regenerative Medicine and Steve Stice, director of the Regenerative Bioscience Center at the University of Georgia, Georgia Research Alliance Scholar and Chief Scientific Officer of Aruna Biomedical.

Georgia Trend Magazine does not take nominations for the most influential awards, rather they chose these people based on the events and news from the year and create these lists based on the notion that these are the people that "will affect the course of events in Georgia" in the future.
