Natalia Trayanova, the Murray B. Sachs Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University, the co-director of ADVANCE (the Alliance for Cardiovascular Diagnostic and Treatment Innovation), and a member of the Institute for Computational Medicine, will be inducted into the Women in Technology International Hall of Fame in a ceremony on June 10, 2019.
The WITI Hall of Fame was established in 1996 to recognize, honor, and promote the outstanding contributions women make to the scientific and technological communities that improve society. Each year, five women are selected from around the world to receive this honor, and Trayanova now joins the ranks of other scientists, engineers, and CEOs whose exceptional contributions to advancing their fields of inquiry have made an impact on society.
“We launched the Women in Technology Hall of Fame in 1996 – at a time when there were no platforms showcasing the contributions of women in technology,” said Carolyn Leighton, chairwoman and founder of WITI. “Since then, more than 100 exceptional women have been selected for this award. These Women in Technology Hall of Fame inductees inspire future generations to reach higher, push boundaries, and create breakthroughs that will positively impact our future.”
