"Thayer School of Engineering professor Jane Hill has conducted research on topics ranging from the College’s corpse flower “Morphy” to infectious diseases," writes The Dartmouth. "On March 25, Hill was inducted into the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering College of Fellows during a formal induction ceremony at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C., one of the highest professional distinctions a biological or medical engineer can receive. ...
