Diane Dalecki Appointed BME Department Chair

Diane Dalecki has been appointed the chair of the Department of Biomedical Engineering, a joint program shared by the Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the School of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Rochester. Dalecki is the Distinguished Professor of Biomedical Engineering, holds a secondary appointment in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and also serves as the director of the Rochester Center for Biomedical Ultrasound.

She is an internationally recognized expert in biomedical ultrasound. Her laboratory is dedicated to developing novel diagnostic ultrasound techniques and discovering new applications of ultrasound for therapy, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine.

Dalecki is a fellow of the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM), of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA), and of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE). She completed her BS in chemical engineering and MS and PhD in electrical engineering at the University of Rochester.


The distance between Goergen Hall, home to the Department of Biomedical Engineering, and the University of Rochester Medical Center. Less than a 5 minute walk, this close proximity makes it easy to connect with clinician colleagues.


The Department of Biomedical Engineering brings together the technical expertise of the Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences with the clinical experience of our University of Rochester Medical Center to establish a cooperative environment that fosters innovations in medicine and healthcare.
