Stanley M Dunn
Professor, Vice Provost, Dean Graduate Education
Dunn joins Rensselaer from his position as professor of biomedical engineering and the Paul S. and Mary W. Monroe Faculty Scholar at Rutgers University, where he was also an associate dean of the School of Engineering and associate director of the university’s Center for Innovative Ventures for Emerging Technologies, a center to promote research translation and industry-university relationships.
Since joining Rutgers in 1986, Dunn has served as the graduate program director, vice chair, acting chair, and interim chair of Rutgers’ Department of Biomedical Engineering. He also played a key role in growing the department’s undergraduate enrollment.
Dunn’s experience includes developing universitywide initiatives in such areas as packaging engineering, water resource management, and homeland security. He also has extensive experience building academic programs, including overseeing the country’s first engineering-based clinical training program in prosthetics and orthotics. Dunn has mentored 14 Ph.D. students, 23 M.S. students, and many undergraduate students. These students have come from biomedical engineering, electrical and computer engineering, computer science, mathematics, dentistry, as well as the M.D./Ph.D. program.
The author of three books and 150 papers on different subjects including digital subtraction radiography, Dunn is a fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering. He is the founding editor-in-chief of the Journal of Applied Packaging Research, and has served as an editor and officer of several journals and professional organizations. He is co-organizer of an NSF-funded workshop on Nanotechnology in Biology to be held in October 2008.
Dunn received two undergraduate degrees from Drexel University, and went on to earn his master’s degree and doctorate in computer science from the University of Maryland. He also earned a doctorate in imaging science from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam in the Netherlands.
