“Invention is something that comes out of necessity.”
Director of the joint NASA / United States Air Force space medical instrumentation program and supervisor of design for medical experiments in both the Apollo and Skylab space programs.
Rocky Mountain Bioengineering Symposium began in 1963 as a two-day meeting at the United States Air Force Academy to bring together a multi-disciplinary group of faculty from Colorado and Wyoming to share interests in the area of bioengineering. The group decided to meet again the following year and established a board of directors to continue and advance the annual organization.
