Emery N. Brown, M.D., Ph.D., 1991 program alum, has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering.  He is already a member of the Institute of Medicine and a member of the National Academy of Sciences, and so becomes one of a small number of people who are in all three National Academies. He is the first African-American and the first anesthesiologist, and the first AMFDP alum to be elected to all three.

Dr. Brown is the Warren M. Zapol Professor of Anesthesia, Harvard Medical School; and Edward Hood Taplin Professor of Medical Engineering and professor of computational neuroscience, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge. He is recognized for the development of neural signal processing algorithms for understanding memory encoding and modeling of brain states of anesthesia.
