Welcome to the Alliance of Advanced Biomedical Engineering (AABME)
AABME is a new resource that brings together practitioners in the growing and increasingly indispensable discipline of biomedical engineering. Whether your work is in industry or in academia, for a long-established firm, a research center, or a visionary startup, you have likely encountered the same challenges so many in the field face today: the difficulty of connecting with colleagues via specialized but ultimately fragmentary networks; the challenge of reaching the right audiences for one’s work at all stages of its development; the need for access to broad and deep cross-disciplinary expertise; and many others.
The Alliance of Advanced Biomedical Engineering (AABME) has been founded to address these needs and will:
To support these efforts, AABME will leverage the global recognition, reach, and expertise of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), our parent Society. ASME established its Human Factors Division—the forerunner to today’s ASME Bioengineering Division—in 1956, and the Society soon distinguished itself as a leader in biomechanics and mechanobiology. AABME is deeply rooted in the biomedical field and will continue that legacy of ASME’s technical excellence by offering a powerful set of solutions and resources to the biomedical engineering community to promote innovation, collaboration and growth.
We hope you will be encouraged to engage with this community. We welcome and value your feedback and look forward to a fruitful collaboration.
