In Memoriam: Martin E. Anderson

Martin E. Anderson, Ph.D. passed away unexpectedly on October 17, 2011. Martin completed his graduate and post-graduate training at Duke University in the lab of Gregg Trahey. In 2000, Martin came to the University of Rochester and was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering from 2000-2003. During his time at the UR, Martin led a productive laboratory in the area of biomedical ultrasound imaging, and was an active member of the RCBU.

He trained numerous undergraduate and graduate students and made significant contributions to the development of the UR BME program. In 2003, Martin moved to the Seattle area and continued his productive career as an ultrasound systems engineer for Philips Healthcare. Recently, Martin led a team that developed and released the new X6-1 Purewave Matrix transducer that provides both 2D and 3D real-time imaging. Colleagues at Rochester and across the biomedical ultrasound community are deeply saddened by the sudden loss of Martin Anderson.
