Wallace H. Coulter Chair, Biomedical Engineering
Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory School of Medicine
GRA Eminent Scholar in Injury Biomechanics
Dr. Margulies is the Chair of the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory University, and the Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar in Injury Biomechanics. She received her BSE in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Princeton and PhD in Bioengineering from the University of Pennsylvania, and was a post-doctoral fellow at Mayo. With over 30 years of experience in the areas of traumatic brain injury research and pulmonary biomechanics, Dr. Margulies has secured over $35 million in federal, private, and industry funding to discover injury mechanisms on the macro and micro scales, and translate basic research findings to improve clinical outcomes. Dr. Margulies is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, Biomedical Engineering Society, and American Institute for Medical
and Biological Engineering, and a Member of the National Academy of Engineering and National Academy of Medicine.
The Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Emory University and Georgia Institute of Technology is the only public-private inter-institutional BME department in the nation and is a national leader in translational biomedical engineering research and education. Faculty research focuses on cell manufacturing technologies, biomaterials, imaging and instrumentation, informatics and systems modeling, biomedical robotics, cardiovascular engineering, immunoengineering, neuroengineering, cancer technologies and innovative engineering education methods. Coulter BME is top ranked in the nation (#2) for PhD and undergraduate programs, and graduates the largest number of female and under-represented biomedical engineers annually.
