IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society Membership

IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society Membership

IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) is the world’s largest international society of biomedical engineers. The organization’s 10,000 members reside in some 97 countries around the world. EMBS provides its members with access to the people, practices, information, ideas and opinions that are shaping one of the fastest growing fields in science.

Our members design the electrical circuits that make a pacemaker run, create the software that reads an MRI, and help develop the wireless technologies that allow patients and doctors to communicate over long distances. Our Members are interested in bioinformatics, biotechnology, biomechanics, clinical engineering, information technology, instrumentation and measurement, micro and nanotechnology, radiology, and robots. They are researchers and educators, technicians and clinicians - biomedical engineers are the link between science and life science, creating innovations in healthcare technology for the benefit of all humanity.

IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society Technical Communities (TCs) are formed in targeted areas of biomedical engineering and include experts from academia, industry, and government. These TCs coordinate conferences, publications and member development within their area of expertise. We welcome volunteers!
