Funding Information:
Bin He (S’87–M’88–SM’97–F’04) received the Ph.D. degree in biomedical engineering with the highest honors from the Tokyo Institute of Technology, Tokyo, Japan, and completed the post-doctoral fellowship in biomedical engineering at Harvard University—MIT, Cambridge, MA. After working as a Research Scientist at MIT, he joined the faculty of the University of Illinois at Chicago, where he was a Professor of Bioengineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Computer Science, and the Director of Biomedical Functional Imaging and Computation Laboratory. He is now a Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis. He also holds an appointment of Visiting Professor at Zhejiang Univer-sity, China, and has been active in developing international collaborative research projects. He has published over 150 scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings, and has been active in professional activities in the field of biomedical engineering and bioelec-tromagnetism. His major research interests include biomedical functional imaging and source imaging, neural engineering, cardiovascular engineering, and computational biomedicine. Dr. He serves as the President of International Society of Bioelectromagnetism (2002–2005), and VP for Publications and Technical Activities (2005–2006) of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society. Dr. He serves as Associate Editor for IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING, IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY IN BIOMEDICINE, and International Journal of Bioelectromagnetism, and also serves as the Editor of the Book Series on Bioelectric Engineering, being published by Kluwer Academic Publishers, and is on the editorial board of Clinical Neurophysiology and Journal of Neural Engineering. He served as the sole Guest Editor for special issues of IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Magazine, EEE TRANSACTIONS ON INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY IN BIOMEDICINE, Electromagnetics, Critical Reviews in Biomedical Engineering, and Methods of Information in Medicine, as well as the books entitled “Neural Engineering” and “Modeling and Imaging of Bioelectric Activity –Principles and Applications.” He is an AIMBE Fellow, the recipient of the National Science Foundation CAREER Award, American Heart Association Established Investigator Award, the University of Illinois University Scholar Award, the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Engineering Faculty Research Award, and is listed in Who’s Who in Science and Engineering, Who’s Who in America, and Who’s Who in the World.
