Dr. James Greenleaf (MSES '66, Ph.D. '70) always wanted to be an engineer, but also enjoyed working in medicine. He ended up with the best of both worlds: a career at the Mayo Clinic teaching biomedical engineering. He also heads Mayo's Ultrasound Imaging Lab, pioneering new methods of using ultrasound to diagnose and treat diseases. Dr. Greenleaf received Purdue's Distinguished Engineering Alumni award in 2017.
