This is an excellent opportunity to join the leadership team of our national organization, provide input on programs and direction of the organization, and develop professional relationships.

For over 23 years, IBE has been supporting the community of scientists and engineers who are at the forefront of creating new linkages between biology and engineering: It seeks far-reaching opportunities for connecting with people and developing designs and educational perspectives through biology-inspired engineering. What sets IBE apart from many other professional societies is its focus on addressing the grand challenges (or, the biggest problems, in Bill Gates’s words) of our times — sustainable food, energy, and environmental systems and quality health — by using inclusive approaches through the broadest network of partners from all fields of life sciences, physical sciences, engineering, etc. To realize this mission, the IBE welcomes scientists and engineers who share the same vision to join as members and lead us there.
