Craig S. Henriquez received the B.S.E. degree in biomedical and electrical engineering and the PhD degree in biomedical engineering from Duke University, Durham NC in 1981 and 1988, respectively. He became an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering in 1991 and is currently Professor and Chair of Biomedical Engineering at Duke University and co-director of Duke’s Center of Neuroengineering. In 2002-2003, he was the Medtronics Visiting Professor of Virtual Electrophysiology in the Division of Cardiology at the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois in Lausanne Switzerland. His research interests focus on computational approaches in biomedicine with an emphasis on arrhythmias of the heart and neuroengineering. His work has been supported by NIH, NSF, AHA, DARPA and the Whitaker Foundation. Dr. Henriquez served as an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions of Biomedical Engineering and served on the publications committee for IEEE-EMBS and the steering committee for the IEEE Transactions on NanoBioscience. He is a Fellow of American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE).
