SUNY Fredonia alumnus Dr. Michael Marletta, ’73, was named to the 2024 Class of the College of Fellows of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE).

Dr. Marletta is Professor of Chemistry, Professor of Molecular and Cell Biology, and the CH and Annie Li Chair in the Molecular Biology of Diseases at the University of California, Berkeley.

Election to the AIMBE College of Fellows is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to medical and biological engineers, comprised of the top two percent of engineers in these fields. College membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to "engineering and medicine research, practice, or education” and to “the pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of medical and biological engineering or developing/implementing innovative approaches to bioengineering education.” 

Marletta was nominated, reviewed, and elected by peers and members of the College of Fellows “for fundamental discoveries on gas sensing that have led to commercial application in oxygen delivery.” 

A formal induction ceremony was held during the AIMBE Annual Event at the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel in Arlington, VA, on March 25. Marletta was inducted along with 162 colleagues who make up the AIMBE College of Fellows Class of 2024. While most AIMBE Fellows hail from the United States, the College of Fellows has inducted Fellows representing more than 30 countries.

AIMBE Fellows are employed in academia, industry, clinical practice, and government. They are among the most distinguished medical and biological engineers including three Nobel Prize laureates and 22 Presidential Medal of Science and/or Technology and Innovation awardees. Additionally, 214 Fellows have been inducted to the National Academy of Engineering, 117 inducted to the National Academy of Medicine, and 48 inducted to the National Academy of Sciences.
