Mehmet Fatih Yanik, the Robert J. Shillman assistant professor of electrical engineering in EECS at MIT has discovered a way that will enable viewing a single live cell--without destroying the cell--the current outcome of using electron microscopes to see live tissue. Yanik and EECS graduate student William Putnam propose to overcome the harmful effects from direct scanning with electrons by using a quantum mechanical measurement technique that allows electrons to sense objects remotely.
CSAIL Research Scientist David Clark, one of the Internet's chief architects weighed in on net neutrality as the issues of Internet and network ownership and control mount.
Sangeeta Bhatia, professor in both the Department of Health Sciences and Technology, HST, and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, EECS, at MIT is among three MIT professors selected by the National Institutes of Health, NIH, to receive Pioneer or T-R01 grants designed to encourage scientists to explore high-risk projects with the potential to dramatically transform health research.
Nancy Lynch, the NEC Professor of Software Science and Engineering in the EECS department and head of the Theory of Distributed Systems Group at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, CSAIL, is the recipient of the IEEE 2009 Emanuel R. Piore Award.
Srini Devadas, associate department head of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT, professor of electrical engineering and computer science and principal investigator in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) has just been named as a recipient of one of the coveted InfoWorld CTO 25 Awards.
