One of BME’s own faculty, Dr. Paul Dayton, took home the 2016 Biomedical Wellness Pioneer Award from this year’s Meeting of the Society of Optics and Photonics (SPIE) conference titled “Sensing and Analysis Technologies for Biomedical and Cognitive Applications.” The award was presented to Dr. Dayton for his pioneering work in new ultrasound technologies for noninvasive imaging of cancer angiogenesis. Along with a certificate, Dr. Dayton received a black hat from the conference’s long-time chair as a gesture of welcome and personal congratulations (seen here). The nomination and selection procedure for this pioneer award is traditionally done by previous recipients who serve as the award committee chairs, similar to other world class notable awards in science. As such, Dr. Dayton will have the distinct honor of serving on the selection committee for the next two years. Congratulations, Paul, for this outstanding achievement!
