Jeong-Yeol Yoon, associate professor in the Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering in the University of Arizona’s College of Agriculture of Life Sciences, has been named president elect of the Institute of Biological Engineering (IBE).

Yoon joined the faculty of UA in August 2004. In addition to holding joint appointments in both the School of Animal and Comparative Biomedical Sciences and the Department of Biomedical Engineering, Yoon is a member of the BIO5 Institute. Also director of the Biosensors Lab, Yoon’s latest research includes nanotechnology designed to improve the performance of cardiovascular implants and devices that will allow the use of smartphones to detect foodborne and waterborne pathogens.

Yoon’s dedication to science has landed him on the IBE Council where he will serve as president elect for 2014. The IBE is an organization which aims to encourage interest in biological engineering. The organization supports the science and engineering community through scholarships, grants, seminars and technical development.
