From https://www.bme.gatech.edu/bme/news/wang-named-ieee-fellow: Dr. May Dongmei Wang comes from a family of scientists and engineers, so she has long known the prestige and hard work signified by fellowship in IEEE. That makes her elevation to the professional organization’s Grade of Fellow in 2022 the fulfillment of a lifelong aspiration.

From https://miblab.bme.gatech.edu/: The Bio-MIBLab partners with two computing industry giants, Hewlett Packard and Microsoft Research, to establish not only a strong computing infrastructure, but also to fulfill long term goals through research collaborations.

The Bio-MIBLab is also part of the Winship Institute and ACTSI at Emory University. Together, with multiple committed translational researchers in cancer, neuromedicine, and molecular and genetic biology, the Bio-MIBLab has been able to tackle translational problems such as renal cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, schizophrenia, and fundamental problems in molecular and genetic biology.

Other research sponsors include: NIH, NSF, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, CDC, Atlanta Clinical & Translational Science Institute (ACTSI), Georgia Cancer Coalition, Georgia Research Alliance, IBB, and Johnson & Johnson.
