The BMES BME International Award is to be awarded each year by the Biomedical Engineering Society to an individual in a university, industry, or government to recognize his/her contributions to the advancement of biomedical engineering. The award is intended to honor the worldwide effort of promoting biomedical engineering as a profession with the aim to improve people's health. This new award is made possible by a gift from the Lee family.

The awardee is expected to deliver a plenary lecture at the BMES Annual Fall Meeting and to publish the text of the lecture in the Annals of Biomedical Engineering. A very important purpose of the lecture is to review critically a field of biomedical engineering and to offer a vision on the challenges and opportunities in biomedical engineering.

The award will consist of a plaque, the registration fee for the meeting, and $3,200 from which the awardee pays travel expenses.


1. It is the expressed desire of the Lee family that this award be used to recognize international biomedical engineers and industrial biomedical engineers. It is expected that at least 25% of the awardees will come from the biomedical industry. The worldwide distribution will be about 25% from Asia, 25% from Europe, and 50% from North, Central, and South America, Africa and Australia.

2. The contributions of the awardee do not need to precede the award date by any specific period of time.

3. The Awards Committee will screen the nominations, critically evaluate the nominee's records, and submit a rank ordered list of the top three nominees to the BMES President. The President, in consultation with Long Range Planning Committee, will select the awardee.

Please submit a letter describing the nominee's contribution to biomedical engineering by June 1, 2001 to: BME International Award, Awards Chair, BMES, 8401 Corporate Drive, Suite 110, Landover, MD 20785-2224, Tel· 301-459-1999 · fax 301-459-2444
