The Department of Bioengineering is pleased to announce that Prof. Bir Bhanu, Distinguished Professor and Interim Chair of Bioengineering, has been appointed the inaugural Marlan and Rosemary Bourns Presidential Endowed Chair. This appointment reflects his tremendous achievements in engineering research and education over the past 25 years at UCR. As a testament to his significant accomplishments, which includes publishing more than 500 peer-reviewed articles and 11 books in the areas of computer vision, machine learning and pattern recognition, and biomedical imaging, he has been elected as a Fellow of multiple national societies and organizations including IEEE, AAAS, and AIMBE, among others. He has also served as the Director of NSF IGERT program on Video Bioinformatics at UCR. 

The chair was established in honor of Marlan and Rosemary Bourns, who founded Bourns, Inc. In 1994, they provided a generous gift that led to the naming of the Marlan and Rosemary Bourns College of Engineering at UC Riverside in their honor.
