A Johns Hopkins professor is in elite innovation company.
The MIT Technology Review honored engineering professor Muyinatu A. Lediju Bell as one of its 35 Innovators Under 35. Previous honorees include folks you’ve probably heard of like Mark Zuckerberg, Sergey Brin, Larry Page and Jonathan Ive.
The 32-year-old was honored in the inventor category, and the Review noted that her work is centered around “what makes some ultrasound images blurry.” Here’s how JHU describes Bell’s work, which cuts across disciplines and technologies:
At Johns Hopkins, Bell founded and directs the Photoacoustic and Ultrasonic Systems Engineering Lab, or PULSE Lab, where she is designing the next generation of medical imaging systems using fiber optics, lasers, ultrasound systems, and robot-assisted surgical tools. The goal is to generate clearer live views of a patient’s internal anatomy to help surgeons avoid injuring critical features such as blood vessels and nerves while performing delicate procedures.
She’ll soon have new space in the school’s Carnegie Center for Surgical Innovation.
