Prof. Zam to Join New York University (NYU)

Azhar Zam

Azhar Zam, founding head of the Biomedical Laser and Optics Group (BLOG) at the MIRACLE Project, will join NYU next year as an Associate Professor of Bioengineering.

Azhar Zam came to the Department of Biomedical Engineering in 2016 as assistant professor and founded the MIRACLE’s laser research group -BLOG-. He has built BLOG from the ground up and made it one of the pillars of the MIRACLE project. While Azhar Zam will leave by the end of December 2021, he will still act as PhD supervisor and project advisor until end of MIRACLE I in June 2022. His postdoc, Ferda Canbaz, will take over as the new acting BLOG group leader.

We are sad to see Azhar leave us, but at the same time we are very happy for him that his work of the last years is bearing fruit – and that we will soon have another external collaboration partner at a prestigious institution in the field of biomedical engineering. We wish him only the best for his future.
