      Ellis Meng is an Associate Professor of biomedical and electrical engineering and chair of the Women in Science and Engineering program in the Viterbi School of Engineering. Dr. Meng directs the Biomedical Microsystems Laboratory which specializes in focuses on advancing medicine using enabling micromachining, micro- sensor and actuator, microfluidic, and microsystems technologies. She completed her graduate work in electrical engineering at the California Institute of Technology in 2003. She is a recipient of the National Science Foundation CAREER and Wallace H. Coulter Foundation Early Career Awards. Ellis was recognized as a 2009 TR35 Young Innovator Under 35 for her work in next generation drug delivery pumps. In 2012, she was names one of the Medical Device and Diagnostic Industry’s MedTech 40 under 40. Dr. Meng is a strong proponent of translation of microtechnologies in medicine; she is an inventor of novel pumping technology that is being commercialized by Fluid Synchrony LLC which she co-founded. She currently serves at the chair of the Viterbi School of Engineering Committee of the Women in Science and Engineering Program. She also an active educator and authored a textbook on bioMEMS. Her professional memberships include Tau Beta Pi, IEEE, ASME, ASEE, and BMES.
