Ed Biden - 2016 President's Medal

Dr. Ed Biden joined UNB as a member of the Department of Mechanical Engineering.  His accomplishments in biomedical engineering research led to his appointment as Director of the Institute of Biomedical Engineering from 1990 to 1999.  This was followed by administrative appointments as Chair of the Department of Mechanical Engineering from 1999 to 2001, and then School of Graduate Studies as Associate Dean and Dean from 2001 to 2014.  Over this time Dr. Biden continued to work with many students at the graduate level, supervising over this period 34 MSc and PhD students, and the undergraduate level, supervising 70 senior design groups, including publishing over 120 conference and journal articles and 12 book and book chapters.  The President’s Medal acknowledges service over the span of a career and Dr. Biden’s documented service is well deserving of such a recognition.
