Dr. Albert Shih

✉ : 


Manufacturing is Professor Shih’s research and education focus. He is an active leader in biomedical manufacturing research - the application of science and technology in manufacturing to advance the safety, quality, and cost of healthcare services. His career goal is to apply science and technology in manufacturing to transform the quality-of-life in an aging society. He led the Biomedical Manufacturing and Design Lab (BMDL), which has built close collaborations with clinicians at Michigan Medicine. Over 10 innovations from BMDL have been licensed to the medical device industry and 4 start-up companies have been initiated. Dr. Shih was the manufacturing R&D engineer at Cummins Inc. for 7 years and an Associate Professor in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at NC State University from 1998-2002. In 2003, he joined Mechanical Engineering at the University of Michigan. He starts serving as the Editor-In-Chief of ASME Journal of Manufacturing Science and Engineering in July 2022.
