Dr. Rai Winslow, professor of Biomedical Engineering and the director of the Institute for Computational Medicine (ICM) is honored as the inaugural recipient of the Raj and Neera Singh Professorship in the Department of Biomedical Engineering.

As director of the ICM, Rai oversees an extraordinary initiative, including faculty, clinicians, researchers, and students from the schools of medicine and engineering, that is aimed at developing quantitative approaches to understanding the mechanisms and improving the diagnosis and treatment of human disease. At the ICM, Rai’s areas of research include computational modeling of intracellular signaling, metabolism and electrical excitability of the heart, integrative modeling of cardiac function in health and disease, biomedical data representation and database design, and grid computing and data-sharing.

Raj and Neera Singh, who established the professorship, are principal owners of Telcom Ventures, LLC, a private investment firm specializing in telecommunications and related information technologies. Raj, a longtime supporter of Johns Hopkins, is a member of the university’s Board of Trustees and the School of Medicine’s Board of Trustees, and serves on the Whiting School’s National Advisory Council. Among other institutional affiliations, Raj is also a member of Penn Engineering’s Board of Overseers and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Directors.

A dedication ceremony for the professorship was held on October 4, 2010.

Please join me in congratulating Rai on this terrific honor.
