Sanjeev Shroff, an engineer-physiologist, is an accomplished researcher, teacher, and mentor. He was the recipient of the Established Investigator Award from the AHA (1986-1991) and is an elected Fellow of the American Physiological Society, Fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering, and Fellow of Biomedical Engineering Society. Recognized by his colleagues and peers as a consummate teacher and mentor, Shroff received the Carnegie Science Center Award for Excellence (University Educator) in 2007, the Swanson School of Engineering’s Outstanding Educator Award in 2010, and University of Pittsburgh Chancellor’s Distinguished Teaching Award in 2011. He has developed undergraduate courses and associated novel materials that combine teaching of engineering and biological/physiological concepts and techniques (e.g., BIOENG 1255: Dynamic Systems: A Physiological Perspective). In addition to mentoring 15 post-doctoral and 17 pre-doctoral trainees, he has supervised more than 50 undergraduate student researchers in his laboratory.
