Teaching Honors for BME Trio
Mar 10, 2020 — Atlanta, GA
Three faculty members of the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University have won the Student Recognition of Excellence in Teaching: Class of 1934 Award. James Dahlman, Rudy Gleason, and Marty Jacobson were recognized at the Center for Teaching’s Celebrating Teach Day luncheon on Tuesday, March 10.
Dahlman is an assistant professor whose research is focused on targeted drug delivery, in vivo gene editing, Cas9 therapies, siRNA therapies, and developing new technologies to improve biomaterial design. Within this framework, students in his lab learn how to generate new ideas, select the good ones, and efficiently test whether the good ideas will actually work. Collectively, the Dahlman lab is known for applying big data technologies to nanomedicine.
Gleason, an associate professor with a joint appointment in the Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering, is interested in soft tissue biomechanics, and growth and remodeling, with a particular emphasis on native vascular tissues and tissue engineered constructs.
Jacobson is the machine shop manager for the Coulter Department, where he also lectures on the design of products, taking advantage of cutting-edge manufacturing technology. In his spare time, Jacobson is in-demand as a designer of customized acoustic instruments.
Dahlman and Gleason also are researchers with the Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience.
