David J. Mooney, the Robert P. Pinkas Family Professor of Bioengineering and associate dean for chemical/biological sciences and engineering at Harvard’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE). He is among 68 new members and nine foreign associates elected to the NAE in 2010.

Mooney, who is also a core member of the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard, was recognized by the NAE “for contributions to the fields of tissue engineering and regeneration.”

Election to the National Academy of Engineering is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer. Mooney joins 14 other elected faculty members who are based at SEAS.
